What is telecommuting?
Telecommuting is also known as working from home or working online. It is a work arrangement where the employee can work outside of the workplace. This can involve working from home, working while travelling, or just working from various locations!
Between the employer and the employee, telecommuting may be:
- a full-time arrangement
- for certain days of the week, or
- when requested by the employee.
There are many reasons why an employee telecommutes to work. They may be based in a remote location, where it takes them many hours a day to travel to and from work. They may also need more flexibility in their lifestyle, such as working around their family.
