Definition of WFH

work from home; working from home For some, "WFH," or "work from home," is hardly new. About 29 percent of U.S. workers have the ability to do their work at home, according to numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.— Nick Manes Working from home can mean a drastic lifestyle switch, and your home might be ill-prepared for it. Whether it's carving out a niche in your space where you can be productive, or just enhancing that WFH experience, it's important to make your livable space into a workable one too.— Daniel Modlin
