Employees who worked from home were 13% more productive, says a study by Stanford. The reasons for this include ease of working for the entire day when off-site and having a quieter work space. Additionally, the Stanford study showed a 50% decline in resignations for at-home workers and an increase in profits.
Recruiters with candidates looking for a better work-life balance may find it in remote-optional positions. Agencies can encourage clients to consider the benefits of at-home staff in reduced turnover and more productive employees.
