Telework, also called telecommuting, is one of several alternate work arrangements becoming more common in today's working world. Although advances in technology have made it possible for many more individuals to work from home or other remote locations, that is only one of the reasons for increased interest and participation in telework and other flexible work. Improved work/life balance for employees, improved employee retention, environmental benefits, and reducing commuter traffic are only some of the other reasons.
