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.

    I'm not surprised by this.

    I've been a home office type since 1993. Most of that time, I've owned my own business. The advantages of setting my schedule (to always) and no commute can sometimes be offset by a total lack of office peers and general bullshit.

    Personally, I offset that by having a group of people I work with over IM and VOIP, speaking at conventions, and joining the local volunteer fire department -- but one way or another, you cannot turn into a hermit and be healthy.
