Remote work has become one of the most valued benefits companies can offer. In some cases, it is the difference between a candidate accepting or declining an offer, but it may also influence a current employee’s decision to stay or look for other options.

Based on a 2022 MRA survey “Remote Work and Inflation”, 62 percent of organizations allow remote work options for some, if not all employees.

Every employer is duty bound to provide a safe work environment for their employees, regardless of where they work. Yet most employers will find that improvised home offices are “less likely to be ergonomically compliant, which can lead to repetitive stress injuries … and may also be more liable for slip-and-fall injuries,” according to an article shared by Insurance Business America titled “Workers’ Comp Liabilities Facing Work From Home Employees.”
