Is working from home more or less productive?

Around 43 percent of American employees spent some time working remotely last year. With increasingly effective tools for getting work done anywhere, the data indicates that the remote-work trend is here to stay—telecommuters report greater job satisfaction and higher productivity. But many workers say they need the structure and camaraderie of the office to be productive. They're just not as effective when they work from home. What do you think?

Many people point to the constant interruptions in offices as a reason why they are more productive at home.

Others say the office helps their productivity.

Many say the office spurs innovation, team bonding, and cooperation you just can't get with an all-remote team.

But many say fostering innovation is just an excuse: many managers simply want greater control over their subordinates, and many business leaders are still wedded to the idea that "good" employees spend 60 hours a week in an office. John Challenger, chief executive of executive coaching firm Challenger Gray & Christmas, says it's fear on the part of management.

“A lot of companies are afraid to let their workers work from home some of the time or all of the time because they’re afraid they’ll lose control.”
