Everything about the modern employee’s workspace is changing—both physical and digital. The ability to work remotely is more important than ever across all industries. And it’s no longer uncommon for businesses to offer flexible working arrangements. In a 2015 survey of 3,789 knowledge workers, Dropbox researchers found that 50% work from home at least part of the time. Regular work at home, among the non-self-employed population, has doubled since 2005.
At Dropbox, we’re focused on building products that solve real problems for our users. To do that, we conduct a lot of research on how people work and collaborate. Through our own research and secondary sources, we see how people are learning to use technology to work together more effectively.
