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.

    Re: like it is too close

    agreed.i will say that my home kitchen is alot cheeper and much more healthy than the venting machines and fast food around the office.

    also, i think most here are forgetting that "most" people are not partners, or developers. in most cases workers are service and production. and most service and production cannot be telecommuted.

    telecommuting is really a privilege in "most" work enviroments. one that has few professional benifits.

    i will agree that "most" management is closeminded about telecommunications. aswell as floating work times. wich by the way, is as effective in "most" industries.
