From NineShifter Jeff Kart in Michigan, an article in Grist:
"Employers across the country are offering workers the option to telecommute or work a four-day week to help cut down on fuel costs. Compressed work weeks are particularly attractive to employees who work in places without reliable mass transit -- especially since a 10-hour day can mean coming in early and leaving late enough to avoid rush hour traffic. As an added bonus, offices find that fewer employees on site means lessened energy costs. And allowing workers to cut down on commuting can also increase morale."
We have said that around 2010 employers will realize that telecommuters are more productive than office workers, and the current gas crisis is certainly helping move in that direction. Thanks Jeff!
