Telecommuting Concerns...Are They Blocking the Progress of the Flexible Workplace?  

Back in 2008, research firm IDC predicted that 75% of the workforce would be mobile by 2012.   In contrast, the Telework Research Center reports that only 2% (2.8 million) workers identify home as their primary location of work, and 17.2 million people work from home at least one day a week. Additionally, Forrester Research reported in 2009 that 34 million Americans work at least occasionally from home, and predicted that by 2016 that number will jump to 63 million.
