    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.
