With the increased use of advanced technology, there has been a rise in the number of employees who work from home. According to one recent report, nearly one-quarter of U.S. workers telecommute at least part of the time, and even more would like to. Remote work can also be a perk to attract top-quality candidates—especially important in this tight labor market.
