    According to a study by the Harvard Business Review done in 2014, researchers tested the productivity and satisfaction of employees who worked from home. Half of the employees worked from the office, while the other half worked from home for 9 months. The results showed that those who worked from home were not only happier with their job and less likely to quit, but they were also more productive. These findings also showed that the company saved close to $2,000 per employee for those 9 months (space and furniture costs). Changes in the workplace such as these won’t be beneficial for every business, but it does show that the traditional workplace environment isn’t always the best for business.

      Thanks for sharing this. The office/remote working disparity is an interesting one. Do you know of any other examples of initiatives/tech developments to make workers more productive?
