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.

    There is comfort being around other people

    Sometimes we get comfort by being around other people. We may not like them all the time but it doesn't matter much. Some people have temperaments that make them go ballistic when they are at home alone too often.

    And for others there is what they call compartmentalization. Work is done in an office. Home is a place of rest. They are separate compartments so to speak. To merge them would upset their balance.
