Almost half of your staff may be working out of their offices, but have you ever measured the impact these remote locations are having on their productivity levels?

If this report by turnstone is anything to go by, you might want to start doing so.

Polling 2,022 adults across the United States, the report found while 71% of employed workers work remotely at times, doing so frequently has detrimental effects on their productivity levels.

More than seven out of 10 (72%) of those surveyed reported having some problems when working outside the office. Most of these issues stemmed from difficulties hearing phone conversations (35%), while more than a quarter (26%) cited limited WiFi/internet access.

The inability to print remotely was also a problem for 25% of those surveyed, while 24% struggled to connect to company servers.

Workers were found to be most productive, however, when they worked from home (64%), a co-working space (18%), and a coffee shop (6%).
