The Staffing Stream contributor Kevin Sheridan provides some interesting facts about the increase in virtual work in his recent post entitled The Trend of Virtual Work. Here are, directly quoted, a few of them:

  • It is estimated that by 2015, 40% of the global workforce will be virtual workers.
  • Currently, 82 percent of Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” already have virtual work policies. That number is expected to rise as time and technology advance.
  • 81 percent of people that have worked remotely report that they were more productive at home than working in a “traditional” workplace environment.
