Good Advice for Managing Mobile Workers

Well, one assumes that all your workers are somewhat mobile -- moving fingers on keyboards, using legs to wander around the office, wielding arms to pick up donuts, breathing and the like. But for those who move a bit further afield, this article from the HR World website (a whole world of HR -- wow!) has some pretty detailed management considerations for dealing with people who go places for work. I particularly like the analysis of the types of mobile workers and worker personalities. The main take-aways from this piece: make it easy for people to get in touch with each other, and measure results.

Plus it's nice to see someone writing about telecommuting without invoking that RPI study.
