Teleworking is emerging as one of the fastest- growing alternatives to commuting to work. The term does not apply to home-based businesses or branch offices but instead to part- or full-time employees who work from home or small offices with communications access to the main workplace.
Teleworking has also become a critical strategy for employers across the country to enhance worker productivity, improve morale, and cut costs associated with high office rents. Companies in areas such as South Florida also employ teleworking to address emergency preparedness in events such as natural disasters.
Many employers find that these benefits easily offset the cost of supplying teleworkers with the necessary hardware and supplies.
