The ability to work remotely is one of the key innovations of the modern workplace. The trouble is, not everything translates away from the office. 

Alternative workspaces don’t always have the necessary tools for employees to be productive, according to a new report from turnstone, an office furniture brand from Steelcase.

While 71 percent of employed workers work remotely at times, 72 percent of those who worked remotely reported having some problems when working outside the office, said turnstone. Of those who reported having issues, 35 percent had difficulty hearing phone conversations, 26 percent had limited WiFi/Internet access and 24 percent struggled to connect to company servers.
