Summary
  • Some 2.5 million Americans are telecommuting to work at home, but telecommuting has yet to have any effect on the work force in Canada. Blamed are conservative managers who suspect employees would loaf if allowed to work at home, although studies show an 8 to 15 percent increase in productivity from home workers. The rise of two-income families which have increased costs of child care is making telecommuting more attractive. Further savings on time and money of commuting, lunch and business clothing is also putting telecommuting in a good light. Many companies are encouraging employees to have computers at home, if only to take work home with them. Getting computers in the home is the first step towards telecommuting.
