Research shows that around half of the American workforce holds jobs that are compatible with remote work, meaning they don't need to be in an office to do their jobs. Millions of these people are working from home for at least half of each week. In fact, since 2005, working from home (for those not self-employed) has grown by over 100%. Working remotely offers plenty of benefits, not just to the employee doing the remote work, but to the organization allowing them to do it in the first place. In order to take advantage of those benefits, you need to be a successful remote employee.
