Office workers missing out? Bunkum!

A fierce reaction to the story last week which suggested it was traditional office workers who were feeling hard done by rather than teleworkers. Andrew R. McIlvaine in Human Resource Executive Online spoke to Jack Heacock, senior vice president and co-founder of Washington-based The Telework Coalition, who had this to say:
"This guy studies one medium-sized company and attempts to draw a conclusion about the entirety of teleworking from that?" His conclusion is antithetical to everything we know to be true from a decade's worth of study -- and it's a lousy piece of research. The results say far more about the attempt by this one company to design and implement a teleworking program than they do about teleworking itself."
The article is well worth a browse.
