Over the past year, more workers began telecommuting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And many of those workers may continue to work from home after the pandemic is over. Prior to the pandemic, only 20% of all employed people whose jobs could be done from home worked from home all or most of the time. That number has risen to 71%, with 54% saying they want to continue working from home after the pandemic ends. In order to work at home, one not only needs a supportive employer, but a comfortable home work environment and reliable, affordable infrastructure.
