104 Companies That Offer Home Office Stipends

companies with home office stipend

This post was written on August 11, 2022. We updated the research and post on January 23, 2023.

Why did we build offices in the first place? We needed…

  1. A place to collaborate
  2. A place to get work done with the proper equipment

Well, the internet knocked out #1 as many major companies have gone remote. We can work together on Zoom, Slack, email, and remote collaboration tools just fine.

But #2 hasn’t quite been solved yet.

If you had a nice desk, good lighting, and great internet at the office (but a coffee table, dingy closet, and WiFi you share with your kids while working from home), you know what I mean. The office still wins on the equipment front.

But that’s changing as more and more companies have started to offer stipends for home office equipment.

What Is A Work-From-Home (WFH) Stipend?

A work-from-home stipend is a fixed sum of money paid from employer to employee to be used for home office equipment.

Also known as a remote work stipend, there are two kinds that companies offier:

  • A one-time stipend is a fixed amount provided at one point in time (upon starting or six months into employment, for example) to cover costs of home office equipment
  • A monthly stipend is an amount paid each month for home office equipment, or reimbursements for phone and internet


What is the average home office stipend amount?

From our research on the list of companies you see above…

  • The average one-time stipend for remote work is $812
  • The average monthly stipend for remote work is $160


What should you buy with a home office stipend?

Assuming that a laptop is provided outside of the home office stipend, here is a full list of home office equipment. In order, this is what I recommend after a decade working from home:

  1. Chair: pick one here
  2. Desk: pick one here
  3. Monitor: we send out these to people at Nectafy
  4. Wireless keyword and mouse: I have a magic keyword and mouse
  5. Video conference background: I have an Anyvoo
  6. Storage: pick from the best options here


What does a typical home office stipend policy look like?

One-Time Stipend

“Employees can purchase office equipment such as lamps, office chairs and a new desk, then submit the one-time remote allowance of up to $1,000 through their expense reimbursements.”

Monthly Stipend

“Employees will be reimbursed up to $200 a month to put toward the rental of a co-working space, internet, or home office equipment.”

Cell-Phone & Internet Expenses Reimbursement Rate

“Employees will be reimbursed at the following rate:

  • Full-Time: Cell-phone & Internet: Up to $150/month
  • Part-Time: Cell-phone & Internet: Up to $100/month”
