Lifestyle, Affordability, and Values are Driving Where People Live and How They Work
According to the latest numbers from Pew Research Center, almost 60% of U.S. workers say their job can mainly be done from home all or most of the time. While some say their workplace has remained closed, over 61% of those who do work from how are doing it by choice and are finding more balance in their work and home life.
