Remote Workers Are Living Further From Employers

According to a new report from Stanford University and Gusto, remote workers are living further from the office.

The report found that the distance from employee residence to employer location rose from 10 to 27 miles between 2019 and 2023.

The research also found that 5.5% of employees lived over 50 miles away from their employer in 2023.

According to the report, the pro-typical employee who lives far away from their employer is a high-earning Millennial.

It is also more common for those working in the Information sector or in Finance & Insurance.

The study also analyzed remote work in different US states.

Colorado had the highest percentage of remote workers at 21%, while Mississippi came in last with 5.5% of workers working from home.

The survey found that hybrid work is most prevalent for workers making between $75,000 and $100,000.

One-third of hiring managers said that productivity has increased due to remote work settings.
