By surveying more than 4,500 U.S. information workers, they learned half of the companies surveyed have formal remote workers or a telework policy.

Ron Markezich, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s U.S. Enterprise and Partner Group said that “telework is no longer a company perk for employees but a business imperative.” Markezich went on to say that “a host of benefits are now widely acknowledged to be good reasons to adopt telework initiatives and supporting technologies. Employers can tap into a larger talent pool, improve productivity, increase employee diversity and lower overhead costs.” And remote workers can have “a more flexible work-life balance and reduce the stress of long commutes.”
