Telecommuting-An Act That is Going Away?

In today's Wall Street Journal, Sue Shellenbarger has an interesting column (Some Companies Rethink the Telecommuting Trend) about the reduction in "telecommuters" by several large corporations and government agencies. Telecommuting has long been held up as one way to better achieve balance in work and life. Her column points out that it may not be the best fit for several companies.

The best part of the column is found at the end. Shellenbarger offers some simple yet superb tips for "keeping the at-home gig." They include:

  • Perform well
  • Increase your visibility
  • Make an effort to collaborate
