Workers with smaller businesses lead among workers working from home
The smallest employers account for the most significant share of adults working from home. Throughout the US, UK, and Germany to Japan and China, nearly one in three (31%) workers working from home work for organizations with fewer than 20 employees. Among those not working from home, these smaller employers only make up one in six. This is a finding from our survey of 8,307 worker respondents across the US, Germany, UK, Japan, and China from TUP/Technology User Profile 2021.

Age, education, and teamwork favor working from home
Those who are working from home are demographically distinct from those who are not. We found many demographic differences in our survey of 13,918 respondents across the US, Germany, UK, Japan, and China for TUP/Technology User Profile 2021.
Workers working from home are younger than workers not working from home and those not employed outside the home. Those working from home are also more likely to have a partner and higher educational attainment.
