Telecommuting is becoming a mainstay in America. Today, more than 34 million Americans telecommute on an occasional basis at the least. It’s a number that is expected to swell beyond 60 million by 2014.

Recent growth in telecommuting came amid recession and mass layoffs. The movement has largely been fueled by employers’ desires to cut costs, an emphasis on being environmentally friendly, and the increasing availability of high-speed Internet connections at the homes of employees. The paradigm shift has a wide array of advantages, including higher productivity and access to a wider labor pool.

This guide pulls together several resources to help you weigh the risks and benefits of telecommuting. It details the security risks involved, and offers tips for introducing a telework program, optimizing your business to accommodate telecommuters and motivating virtual teams.
