People who work from home are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs compared with office-only workers, but they are also more likely to feel more disconnected from their coworkers, according to recent research from Porch.
The report was based on data from a survey of 1,001 workers in three categories: employees who work from home exclusively, employees who split work time between their home and the office, and employees who work in the office exclusively.
Some 79% of remote employees say they are satisfied with their jobs, compared with 78% of split workers and 70% of office-only workers.
A quarter of remote employees say the feel disconnected from their coworkers, compared with 19% of office-only workers.

Some 65% of remote workers say they do personal tasks while on the clock, 45% shower, 35% run errands, and 34% exercise.
