Many Workers Would Take Pay Cut to Telecommute

The survey found that American workers were slightly more likely than workers in the United Kingdom (20 percent) and Australia (15 percent) to say they'd take a pay but in order to work remotely.

The survey found that most workers (56 percent) said they have never had the opportunity to work remotely. Many small-business owners say telecommuting isn't an option because job duties demand attendance in the office (38 percent), telecommuting hampers relationship building (19 percent), and worker productivity would decline if allowed to telecommute (15 percent).

When asked what they like most about telecommuting, employees cited having more control over schedules, even more than saving time and money on transportation. Female entrepreneurs were 50 percent more likely than their male counterparts to allow working from home.
