Survey: Remote Workers Like Balance

However, training and technology create challenges

The demand for remote work is growing, and a big reason for that is the opportunity for better work-life balance. But remote workers also experience pain points, particularly "glitchy" technology and a lack of training, according to a new study.

The videoconferencing firm Owl Labs, collaborating with Global Workplace Analytics, surveyed more than 1,200 full-time workers. They found that more remote workers are happy in their job (71 percent) than onsite workers (55 percent), and slightly more than half (51 percent) of onsite workers want remote working opportunities.

According to the report, nine in 10 workers cite a better work-life balance as a key reason for choosing to work remotely, even though they often work more hours than their onsite counterparts.
