Once an oddity in the working world, telecommuting is quickly becoming commonplace.
An August 2015 Gallup poll found that 37 percent of U.S. workers say they have telecommuted — a fourfold increase over 1995. And with the ongoing rise of the so-called Gig Economy — a practice in which independent workers take short-term contracts with employers — Intuit predicts that by 2020, as much as 40 percent of American workers could be independent contractors.
That means a lot more home offices, and you're going to need to have state-of-the-art technology to remain competitive. The good news is, there's a regular stream of devices that can help make your home office the envy of your telecommuting co-workers. Here are some of the best and most recent items to consider.
