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.

    Telecommuting isn't always working from home

    I think what most people miss out on "telecommuting" is that you don't have to work from home. I used to telecommute from multiple locations. I have worked from my vehicle, remote office locations, shared office parks, restaraunts, coffee shops, public libraries, etc.
    The best part about it is the fact that I don't have to seperate worktime and hometime. I have taken my children to museums while stopping occasionally to conduct phone business. I completed a project via telecommuting while I was on the AMTRAK. It's all about how to use your time.
