RESEARCH COMMISSIONED BY O2 reveals that roughly 45% of senior executives in small to medium-sized businesses are teleworking from home at least one day a month. This is a big jump from the 25% figure first published by O2 in 2004. According to the study, carried out by TNS MRBI, 28% of executives now telework at least four days a month. This number misses a big percentage of people who work while untethered from their office networks. A variety of reasons contribute to people working from home. Some (15%) need to catch up on work or meet deadlines while 12% of respondents say that working at home allows them to concentrate without distraction on major projects.
