Telecommuting has been regarded as a powerful tool to reduce traffic congestion, pollution and energy consumption. It is supposed to improve lifestyle quality and job satisfaction by providing employees with flexible schedules with which to address their work load and personal requirements. It is further suggested that such arrangements could enhance recruitment capability and productivity, and significantly reduce organization costs. Nevertheless, a strong resistance to the adoption of telecommuting still persists. Managers fear they may lose control over their remote subordinates and employees are concerned they may be socially and professionally isolated.
