I was listening to talk radio on the way home, and the host was talking about how IBM saves $100 million on real estate because 40% of their workforce works from home. (No cite, so I have no idea how accurate that is.)
Now, I must say, that appeals to me, but I don’t think it would work in my particular job. We produce a daily product for another department, sometimes handwritten changes must be made. Documents must be printed and filed. Deliveries come in that must be processed. Although I could do a lot of my work from home, I don’t think I could do all of it.
How about you? Could you work from home? If you do telecommute, do you find the experience fulfilling? Would you go back to the office if you had the choice, or are you quite happy working on the home computer in your jammies with a kitty in your lap?
