Telecommuting has mostly positive consequences for employees and employers, say researchers

Flexible work arrangements give workers more control over their environment, which helps performance and overall job satisfaction.

Apparently that also benefits the company, as the results also contained "...that telecommuters reported more job satisfaction, less motivation to leave the company, less stress, improved work-family balance, and higher performance ratings by supervisors."

I've always wondered why the take-up of telecommuting arrangements has been so slow. One would expect it to at least alleviate the daily rush-hour traffic. Somehow the irony of going into office everyday (I work for an internet provider) escapes most people.
