This US focused report from Randstad provides some insight into the views of employees which I think is quite surprising.  Despite living in this digital age and with a growing proportion of the workforce being millennials almost two thirds of those surveyed prefer "going to work"!  That percentage is actually higher for the 18-24 age group.

The survey does reinforce the desire for flexibility,  65% of workers indicated that would like the option of occasionally from home but are not able to do so.  80% spoke positively of agile working (the ability to work anywhere, anytime) In addition a third of respondents do not think that their employer equips them effectively to work from home.

The report goes on to indicate that this flexibility provides greater access to a global and diverse workforce with the ability to be agile workers.
