New Research Confirms Benefits Of Telecommuting


Entrepreneur: New Research Confirms Benefits Of Telecommuting

The research, conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and published by the National Communication Association, found that telecommuting employees job satisfaction was higher because working at home created less stress.


As technology evolves, many of the barriers that have traditionally limited telecommuting continue to disappear. The tedious standard of spending 40 hours a week sitting in a cubicle is fading as employers and workers both embrace the benefits associated with telecommuting.

“When you pay workers for their time, they’re willing to give you as much of it as you are willing to pay for. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re maximizing productivity during that time. If you told workers that they can have the rest of the week off as soon as they complete their assigned tasks and meet their deadlines for the week, you would find that five days of effort can probably be compressed to two and have a very empty office after Tuesday while everyone is out golfing.”
