    A growing number of enterprise employees now are telecommuting - ranging from ad hoc work from home due to the pandemic and temporary family situations to full-time telework/home work arrangements. In fact, a recent survey found that 87% of the North American and European enterprises (companies with 1,000 or more employees) responded that a significant portion of employees spend 20% or more of their working time telecommuting or working away from the office.

    • On days they worked, 34 percent of employed persons did some or all of their work at home and 69 percent of employed persons did some or all of their work at their workplace.  
    • The share of employed persons who spent time working at home on days worked decreased slightly from 38 percent in 2021 to 34 percent in 2022.
    • Workers with higher levels of education were more likely to work at home than were those who had less education.
    • On days they worked, employed men worked 32 minutes more than employed women. This difference partly reflects women's greater likelihood of working part time.
    • On days they worked, employed women were more likely than employed all of their work at home--41 percent of women, compared with 28 percent of men.
    • Many more people worked on weekdays than on weekend days: 81 percent of employed persons worked on an average weekday, compared with 29 percent on an average weekend day.
