While the trend is clearly visible, it is interesting to see that this year's survey shows the continued march forward as this work option increases. I suspect that technology was the turning point in 2005. It will be interesting to see year over year changes to see if the momentum picks up.
Thanks Daria.In some industries/occupations the trend is faster than in others. We'll write more about this in a future blog.Thanks,Gad
There may be a generational aspect to this trend, but in a counter-intuitive way; that is, older employees teleworking for reasons of health and/or convenience. I'm an economist and suffered a slight stroke several years ago. I was offered the option of working at home three days a week when I fully recovered. I've never looked back. Avoiding a difficult daily commute may be one method to encourage valued employees to stick it out a couple of years longer.
