Why shedworking is good for your company

A nice piece at ITWorld briefly sums up why teleworking/homeworking/shedworking is good from an employer's standpoint. Two examples:
Telecommuting promotes productivity by reducing stress. Stressed out employees are like cars running on empty tanks. Arriving at work from a stressful and tiring commute requires workers to pass several minutes before they can get back to the productivity flow. On the other hand, working in a relaxed environment helps them focus on the job.

Telecommuting keeps the family together. In households where both parents are working, telecommuting enables parents to spend more time with their kids. This is one point for running a great company to work for, and not to mention that it encourages employee retention.
