The escalating price of gas is reviving interest in telecommuting as a way for employees to curb the growing cost of commuting to the office.
One recent example:
Sun Microsystems has seen an increase in employees interested in a flexible work program that lets employees work anywhere, including from home. More than 13,000 of Sun’s employees work from home up to two days a week and about 2,000 work from home more than three days a week. It saves employees an average of two hours a week in commute time.
