Cisco Telecommuting Survey: 60% of workers prefer a Home Office
 
 

Cisco has just finished conducting a huge international study involving 2,600 workers and IT professionals from 13 countries. The survey showed 3/5 employees "believed it was unnecessary to be in the office to be productive". And this study wasn't skewed by lazy westerners looking to spend more quality time with the Xbox. 81% of Chinese employees and 93% of Indian employees felt this way.

76% of Brazilian workers also supported working from home and accessing work-related information on a broad family of devices. About half of employees admitted to working between 2-3 extra hours a day outside of the office. A quarter put in 4+ hours. More and more, people are coming to prefer the freedom of a home office.

Of course, there are still major concerns. Big businesses have big privacy worries, 57% of IT respondents felt that security was the major issue preventing broader adoption of mobile offices. The study neglected to mention any of the morale / health benefits of going whole days without wearing real pants.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
