Telecommuting means you work one, two or three days a week
from home or another off-site location.
Telecommuting can provide you with an opportunity to customize the
way you work. It gives you more control over your schedule and more
responsibility for making sure business needs are met. This flexibility
can help maximize productivity and effectiveness and balance the demands
of work and personal responsibilities.
Telecommuting can ease the strains of commuting and can be particularly
beneficial if a job requires quiet, reflective, uninterrupted work time.
There is growing evidence that telecommuting,
when implemented appropriately and managed well, can improve
effectiveness on an individual and organizational level.
But there are challenges too.
Whether you’re a manager or an employee, you’ll want to
