Working Remotely Grows Employee Engagement

BloggerSpending less time in the office actually increases employee engagement according to Gallup research. Working remotely is on the rise all over the country and in a variety of industries. Apparently, it is good for business and for workers. “Job flexibility engages remote workers – which drive performance”, writes Gallup. The researchers go on to explain that there is a optimum level at which engagement peaks. That is when employees spend 60% – 80% of their time away from the office. However, what is interesting about that number is in 2012 the optimal time working remotely was 20% or less. Could it be that once people begin working remotely they enjoy it more?
