One More Time: Most People Don't Like Telecommuting

from the want-to-go-to-the-office dept

This isn't the first time this has been covered, but it seems that people are often surprised at studies like this. Despite high gas prices, plenty of people don't want to telecommute -- even if they have the option of doing so. Believe it or not, plenty of people actually like having a bit of time between work and home that let's them separate the two things. Of course, that doesn't seem like a good reason to ban telecommuting, but to realize that it's just not something everyone wants to do.

    1- Telecommuting is still more acceptable by the Geek-High Bandwidth Crowd, perhaps the average person just finds it difficult to embrace life changing norms initially.

    2- Also an important part of advancing in any career is NETWORKING, that just can't be done with telecommuting.

    Regardless of how skilled somone might be TECHNICALLY, socializing with ones superiors and peers really is essential for advancing.

    Also, there may still be a paranoia about NOT being around to constantly access the atmosphere, and to be able to defend oneself if necessary.
