Companies that embrace telecommuting can drastically reduce overhead costs, too. Think about the overall savings to power/space as the percentage of personnel work remote. You'll have to provide some desks for folks who can't be off-site (data center personnel) + some for people who need to come in occasionally, but in general, the benefits go beyond happier employees. Why this isn't realized more often by those trying to control costs is beyond me.

Nice article, Tim. Thanks!

Two things. I worked from home between 40-100% of each week with two different employers. But while I am very disciplined and productive on my own, I didn't like it. As you said, people need to be built for that kind of environment.

My dad, a DBA for 25 years, has worked remotely for nearly 8 years now. He would have it no other way. My mom, on the other hand, wishes he were out of the house at least a few times during the week Hehe
