by: Elizabeth Ballou Content Creator & Marketer, Clutch
Sophisticated communication technology means that people can work from anywhere, but that changes the social dynamics of work. Clutch's 2018 Future of Work survey shows that most employees still work in offices but that many would prefer to telework. In addition, coworking spaces are rising in popularity.
|The workplace used to refer to a single location, like an office or factory. But, now that the internet makes mobile communication easy, work can happen anywhere.
As more spaces such as homes, trains, and restaurants become workplaces, the social dynamics of work change, too.

The 8 statistics this article explores shows that while the majority of employees still use traditional offices, many would rather telework, or use technology to work elsewhere, and think they’re more effective outside the office.
