According to a new survey from Robert Half, less than half of professionals in Canada (43%) said their company provides the option to work off-site. Of those, 61% take advantage of the perk and work from home; another three per cent do their job from another location, such as a café or shared office space. For the remaining 36%, not having the right technology (47%) and being less productive due to distractions (31%) are the main deterrents to working outside the office. Companies today are taking steps to support staff who want greater flexibility. In a separate survey of senior managers, 54% said their organization has expanded remote work opportunities for employees in the past three years.
