    Very pleased to come across your web site! I think the time for boosting telework is now, given the continued spikiness of oil and gas prices. I’m part of a coalition that wrote a white paper on it, I would be interested in your thoughts:

    Many thanks,

    Sorry for the slow response, it was because we’re just finishing up a whitepaper of our own (Sponsored by Citrix Online) titled The State of Telework in the U.S. It’s a look at the telework trends over the last 5 years, and offers some prognostications about where it’s going. Found some very interesting details, many unexpected. Citrix will probably release it later this month.

    I was amazed at how similar the referenced whitepaper is to our web content, although many of our assumptions and thus our conclusions differ. Their assumption that a typical teleworker will work at home just 2 days a month, for example, is far from the national average of 2.4 days per week for those with a formal arrangement to be paid for their work time at home…and that’s from a BLS supplement to the Current Population Survey published way back in 2004. Still, not everyone has such a formal work at home agreement. In fact, a recent survey showed that while 83% of companies of ad hoc WAH arrangements, only 37% offer it as a full-time situation.

    In any event, thanks for stopping by. The white paper made for some interesting reading.
