Telecommuting & how many people telecommute?

Telecommuting describes the situation in which a person works off-site for all or part of the workweek. In essence, he commutes via telephone or other telecommunication equipment such as a modem. He may telecommute from home, a satellite location or mobile office. He doesn't do assembly work, email processing, envelope stuffing, or ad placing.

How many people telecommute?
The number of telecommuters is difficult to compute. The International Telework Association and Council reports the number of employees who telecommuted at least 1 day per month increased from 23.5 million to 24.1 million in 2004. That number is over 137 million worldwide (Gartner Group). Further, employers offering telecommuting increased 22% in 2004 according to Lori Rosen, CCH workplace analyst in HR Networking: Work-Life Benefits.

Building a home team is both a strategy and a mentality

Building a home team is both a strategy and a mentality. Often there isn't a one time solution to work and family issues. Circumstances change, sometimes from week to week. Mom's who handle these changes well have a "Home Team" so to speak of individuals who support them and are there to help as needed. So, maybe your mother-in-law is part of your home team because she comes over every Friday and takes the kids out for ice cream. Maybe you have a child care center that is the primary home team from 7:00 in the morning to 5:00 at night, and within that center there's a changing group of players there as well. Maybe there's a neighbor who can help you in a pinch if your kid needs to be picked up at school-there's another member of the home team.
