    telecommute, work from homeAre you looking for a more flexible work schedule? Are you constantly distracted in the office? Do you despise your daily commute?
    If so, it might be time to start working from home.
    But while 50% of the workforce currently has jobs that can be done remotely, according to Global Workplace Analytics, not all employers are open to the idea.
    "If your boss isn't willing to offer you a more flexible schedule, it may be time for you to find a new job at a more telecommute-friendly company," says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs, an online service for professionals seeking telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time, and freelance jobs.
    FlexJobs has identified the 25 employers with the greatest number of work-from-home job opportunities right now. To compile the list, it looked at job listings between from over 25,000 companies between June 5 and July 5.
    Major companies including IBM, Xerox, and Apple make the list, proving that working from home is no longer a fantasy but an increasing reality for many workers, says Sutton Fell. "But the really interesting thing is that there are so many small and mid-sized companies offering work-from-home jobs," she says. "Job seekers who need more work flexibility, or whose commutes are too long, or who want better work-life balance should see a list like this and think about their expanding possibilities."

    "People want to work from home because it changes them from simply being busy into actually being productive," says Sutton Fell. "Fewer distractions and interruptions during the workday, more control over your work environment, zero time wasted commuting to and from work, fewer sick days taken, and more satisfaction with your job — that's why people want the option to work from home."
    Page 4 of 4 - According to a new survey organized by London Business School and Deloittea global audience of executives, entrepreneurs and business academics believe that at least half the workforce will work remotely by 2020. 
    "As more people work this way, even for part of their workweeks, more people are exposed to the idea that working from home is a possibility for all professionals, not just for the self-employed or the technology industry," Sutton Fell adds.
    And employers are starting to recognize the benefits of working from home, including cost savings, reduced turnover, and increased productivity and employee satisfaction. "Instead of worrying that people who work from home will slack off, they're seeing other companies who have successful at-home teams and giving it a try in their own companies," she concludes.
