More than 90 percent of millennials, Gen Xers and baby boomers take advantage of their company’s remote work policy, according to a survey of about 300 full-time workers by West Unified Communications. The vast majority of respondents work remotely from home and predominantly for practical reasons, such as caring for a sick child (35 percent), avoiding a long commute (30 percent), improving productivity (30 percent) and avoiding office distractions (28 percent). Three-quarters of remote workers use email and phone as their main form of collaboration, followed by instant messaging, video and web conferencing, and apps.

For those who only use a portion of their employer’s remote work policy, 47 percent said it’s because they prefer an office culture.
