OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — As experts are suggesting social distancing due to the cornona virus, more people are working from home.

Before the virus, 10 million people worked from home; that's six percent of the workforce.

Working from home isn't for everyone, but for the right individual it could actually increase productivity. Technology companies are seeing more requests from individuals and businesses looking to ramp up their at home capabilities.

"The conference platorm allows us to actually show information in realtime, show documents on the screen, share videos, audio, even have a virtual meeting," said Brett Oltman, field sales manager of Windstream.

Working from home also alleviates traffic stress, saves commute time, money spent on work clothes, dry cleaning, and wear and tear on your car.
