At Least 50% of the Canadian Workers Could Telecommute....

...... but only 9% do.

While some jobs will still require a daily commute, it is reasonable to assume that we could achieve a dramatic reduction in energy usage if more people worked at home more often. Estimates suggest that at least 50 per cent of people could work at home today. For employers, this means lower office costs and often more highly motivated employees.

The single greatest barrier to teleworking is management insecurity.
The desire for control is stronger than the desire to do the right thing.
That's sooo 1990.
