Telework on the Rise
Top Reasons More Are Choosing To Work Away from Work
By Carla Garnett
It's not as if anyone needs added incentive to roll out of bed a little later, spend a few extra minutes with the family, steer clear of rush-hour traffic or accomplish a day's work virtually uninterrupted. No, the reason that telework is growing but still only slowly could be that few employees realize the option may be available to them. However, as campus parking spaces become rarer this fall, more people may be seeking and more managers and supervisors encouraging ways to work away from work. The trend is picking up speed at NIH and throughout government.
