This infographic shows how working from home benefits both employees and employers. From NEEDaOFFICE, 'Working From Home: Is It For You?' looks at the positives of remote work and whether it's an option that could work for you.

Currently 34 million Americans work from home, but this number is expected to jump to 63 million by 2016. In 2014, more than 4.5 million people in the UK worked from home.

Working from home benefits employees as it improves job satisfaction and increases employee empowerment and collaboration. Meanwhile, employers see reduced unscheduled absences, increased productivity and lessens the need to over-staff. This offers more opportunity to scale while also saving money. The chart also lists 9 different factors indicating if working from home could be for you.
