"work is something you do, not something you travel to"
Telecommuting offers benefits to communities, employers, and employees.
The terms telecommuting and telework were coined by Jack Nilles in 1973.
Telework flexibility is a desirable perquisite for employees.
Telecommuting, which allows people to work together from different locations, offers a wealth of opportunities for small businesses, including cost savings and the ability to quickly add specialized temporary workers. Telepresence tools, such as video conferencing, make telecommuting possible.
Telework is defined as working at home or at other off-site locations that are linked electronically (via computer, fax, etc.) to a central office or principal place of employment. Teleworking is a cooperative arrangement between the Organization and an employee, based upon the needs of the job, work group, and the Organization.
Employee job responsibilities will not change due to teleworking. Professionalism in terms of job responsibilities, work output, and customer orientation will continue to follow the standards set by the Organization.
