It’s Unclearly Defined, but Telecommuting Is Fast on the Rise

Aided by technology, telecommuting is becoming more common, and while it has its challenges, studies show that it tends to create happier, better workers.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

As a telecommuter myself, I love my set-up. I’ve always gone into the office at least once a month minimally to make sure I’ve had some face time with my bosses (I have two) and be available to those who are in my home office. The commute to the office is about 50 miles away, which in NJ rush hour time is about 1.5 hours of driving on average, so I don’t miss commuting in that respect. Nowadays, my commute is done once a week on average, which is still not too bad. I will agree with this article in that I think I get a lot more done and am more productive working from home. I don’t think everyone is cut out for telecommuting, but for me, it works.
