Abstract

Telecommuting (TC) offers a number of benefits for engineers and high-tech professionals. Among these benefits, the most important are the achievement of greater productivity, less stress and more flexibility to balance work with other commitments. In order to realize the benefits of TC, organizations must possess the needed technology, must identify appropriate tasks and employees and must possess or set up structural supports for telecommuters and their supervisors.
