Historically, employees either drove or commuted into work five days a week. As the digital age has advanced, remote work has become a standard practice for many companies in various types of industries.

According to a report by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics published in 2010, nearly 24% of American workers reported doing some or all of their work from home. Due to the continued advances in technology, a 2018 study found that more than 60% of the world’s work force works at least one day a week away from the office location and that almost 50% of all employees work half the week remotely. This means that almost 3.7 million employees work from home at least part time.
