Distractions at the Office Mean That Remote Workers Outperform

Brian writes about why remote workers outperform office workers:

… one study found that the number of people who say they cannot concentrate at their desk has increased by 16 percent since 2008. Also startling: The number of workers who say they do not have access to quiet places to do focused work is up by 13 percent.

It should not matter where people are getting the work done — as long as they are focused and working hard each day.
