WORKING MY WAY BACK TO YOU

When even the most enlightened managers allow employees to work from home, they may wonder if any real work is getting done. Is the telecommuter just telepretending? In fact, it's just the opposite. For most employees who work remotely, telecommuting equates to working more hours -- not fewer. And that's not necessarily a good thing, since telecommuting often causes work to seep into home life, blurring the boundaries between the two. The study found that:


Nearly one-third of respondents who work from home add five to seven hours to their workweek, compared with those who work exclusively at the office.
Telecommuters are significantly less likely to work a standard 40-hour schedule and more likely to work overtime.
Telecommuters are more likely to use technology, especially email, to perform work tasks even when sick or on vacation.
Telecommuting is not helpful in reducing work-family time conflicts; instead it allows employers to impose longer workdays.
