It is the silent revolution in society. Hush! No one is supposed to talk about telecommuting still growing.
The latest report out is that:
*43 percent of workers now say they spent at least some time working remotely, up 4 percent from 2012.
*Flexible scheduling and work-from-home opportunities play a major role in an employee's decision to take or leave a job.
*Americans are working MORE from home. The share that reported working 4-5 days a week rose from 24% to 31% today.
*Workers who had the highest rates of "engagement" were those who spent 60-80% of their time out of the office.
