Telecommuting technology has been available for years and has become much more reliable with time. While it may not be for everyone, the future of telework appears bright.

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.
