Telecommuting on the Rise as More Want to Work from Home

    Will telecommuting jobs become more attractive as the cost of commuting to work rises? It would certainly seem that way.
    For every day commuters, steep commuting expenses are going to hurt the budget for everyday living expenses and in turn will affect vacations and discretionary spending. Now that the job market is heating up, valued employees - who now commute an average of 8,000 miles per year - may be attracted to job offers that allow them to work from home at least a few days per week. Even workers who hadn't considered the ability to work from home to be important in the past are likely to be attracted to telecommuting jobs.

    Benefits of this type of work is less congestion, less traffic and flexibility.
    But can employers really trust their employees and allow them to work from home.

    It does make a lot of sense to work from home where possible, true. I`m getting to the stage I just hate driving nowadays. :eek:

    There are companies in The US that will let you do all your work from home as a consultant. I am looking to get into that. I can't wait to start working from home. No traffic and commuting to deal with.
