The Baby Boomers Working Remotely
They do their homework. While millennials are considered the most tech-reliant generation, a new report suggests that far more baby boomers depend on technology — for working from home. In the U.S. today, the average telecommuter’s age is 45, and those 65 or older are 1.7 times more likely than younger generations to work from home. While analysts say the phenomenon is likely down to increased trust between bosses and long-time employees, it’s also indicative of a trend away from the strict work environments of old.
