Companies that want to really be telecommuter friendly might could take a page from the federal government: like this Medicare office that is shooting to have at least 15% of its workers at home by the end of the year. They've done a few key things: they have identified some core jobs that can definitely be done better from home, established a core set of technologies, appointed a key person who is charged with promulgating telecommuting, and, most importantly, they have a goal.
If you're at a company and maybe in the vanguard of telecommuters, what could you do to expand the program? What goals could you set for the organization as a whole with regard to building more flexible arrangements for its workers?
Think about it!
