– 69% of participants indicated that they accomplished more while teleworking
– If all interested employees engaged in telework, it would remove nearly 400,000 tons of pollutants from the environment
– 74% of participants indicated that their employers are more open to telework
– Biggest reported benefits of teleworking: #1 work/life balance, #2 productivity
– Most important factor in successful teleworking: leadership is on board
