The Benefits of Working via the Cloud [Infographic]

Currently, 3 million Americans never set foot in an office, telecommuting from home or wherever instead. Many of those workers put in at least a portion of their hours via a cloud labor platform like oDesk, eLance or Freelancer.com.

The below infographic sent to me by the folks at Bolt Insurance takes a look at the trend of cloud commuting and its impacts. It was filled with enough tasty data points and factoids that it seemed worth passing along:

    Great Article.
    At first, I was doing Elance.com as my part time job. Until one day I noticed that I am earning more on elance than my full time job.
    I decided to quit my job and work fulltime on elance. I am happier and satisfied with my life.
    Thanks to Elance, I am working comfortable at home with my son and wife.

    The same experience I had, when I found more earning through eLance than my full time job. The only thing I miss is colleagues working with me! But overall its much good experience than full time working in an office.

    Really nice infographic, I definitely think if there is a way to show some data on reduced stress levels at work with the option of working day out of the week at home and productivity increasing it would do wonders for our economy, curious what everyone thinks of Marisa Mayers' decision to put an end to Yahoo employees working from home?
