The bar chart illustrates the reasons men and women chose to work from home in 2019.
The primary reason for choosing to work from home for 45 % of men and 42 % of females is cost management. Other key factors include a surge in productivity and childcare, the latter of which was particularly favoured by women(26%) and less so by men(4%). While the former was an important factor for men(24%), only a small percentage of women considered it(11%).
There are some interesting observations in the “Hours worked from home ” statistic. An overwhelming majority of women worked under ten hours per week while only a trifle percentage of men did so. Most males regularly put in over 30 hours of work(81%), while it was the exact opposite for women(6%). Both categories aren’t particularly keen on working 10-30 hours a week with only 16 % of men and 22 % of women doing so.
