Poll: Do you think you would be more productive working from home?

Remote working could increase productivity, but it could also decrease one’s commitment to a company.

WITH A FIVE second commute, no work attire and increased flexibility, working from home sounds like a dream. Not all employers are convinced, however.

A study by Swiss-based service provider IWG last year found that 70% of professionals surveyed work remotely at least one day a week and just over half worked remotely for at least half of the week. 

While the chance to work remotely is a high priority for many job seekers, some companies are reluctant to commit to flexible working hours.

Research differs on the subject with some studies saying remote working leads to higher productivity. A report by the Harvard Business Review last year found that remote workers were less likely to stay at their company long-term, however. 

With this in mind, this week we are asking Fora readers: Do you think you would be more productive working from home?
