• Telecommuting OK for execs but not for staff?

    18 Aug 2008

    I’ve been harping on this subject for a while. Why don’t more managers let their employees telecommute? After all, it helps morale, can boost productivity, and even impresses those who buy in to the religion of “global warming”.

    Then I came across this article citing evidence that apparently more in management are telecommuting themselves…The email I received this in had the headline “Joining the telecommute revolution”. Everybody, quick! Jump on the bandwagon!! Anyway, apparently 25% of managers surveyed by SearchCIO.com have started doing it since gas prices have gone up this year… Interesting double-standard.

    What a defeat for logic and good leadership and slap in the face to the people who are actually keeping the ship afloat.
