A network is a collection of computers and devices connected together. The internet is the worlds largest computer network. This rise in telecommunications and both wired and wireless networks has opened up the possibilities for telecommuting (working typically at home but tethered to the companys office) and teleworking (working from anywhere using mobile devices and smartphones). Studies have shown that telecommuting can actually increase a companys productivity. Teleworking, that is, working from anywhere, comes with a potential negative cost the threat of always working and the parallel issue of always being available or online.
Would you like to have a job for which you telecommute or telework instead of going in to the office? Why or why not? What are some of the advantages and disadvantages for you as the employee and for the business as the employer in having teleworking or telecommuting an accepted policy?
