Remote work is a desirable working situation for many employees, but it can take some convincing to get your employer on board. Sure your boss can save money on office space and equipment, but productivity blog WebWorkerDaily suggests emphasising telecommuting-related productivity boosts.

The WWD post is full of interesting, potentially boss-convincing stats and tidbits to convince your boss you'll get more done from home than you can from the office. For example:
Even if you don't work more hours than you would in an office, other studies have shown that the time remote workers spend doing work is much better spent than it would be otherwise. A U.K. study by the Cranfield School of Management found that employees working from home put in more and better quality work in the same time as their office-based counterparts.
Sure, your boss may not be that easily convinced, but if remote work seems like a viable option, it's worth a try, and the post offers some good talking points.
