The trend towards more flexible working conditions has grown exponentially in the past few years. Marked by people's desire to unify their careers with family and private life, flexible working hours and places are in high demand.

Various studies confirm the importance of flexible working hours and places in today's business environment. According to an infographic with compiled information from Stanford University, 44% of employees claim working from home offers fewer distractions than working from the office.

As it becomes more common, it is vital to consider the digital tools that make working from home a seamless transition. For example, VPNs allow workers to connect to the necessary servers to retrieve work files. The secure networks keeps company data protected and even allows remote IT maintenance. Video conferencing also grants at-home employees the opportunity to participate in meetings and remain part of important, relationship-building face-to-face interactions.
