CIOs Remain Cautious About Telecommuting
High gas prices may drive a further increase in mobility. About half of the IT executives polled in our June report on mobility said they expect employees to work more days from home due to higher transportation costs. But an almost equal number said they don't expect telecommuting frequency to change during the next 12 months, signaling lingering uncertainty. Still, just over half of respondents said their company resists telecommuting. As more efficient mobile technologies take hold in the enterprise, CIOs will surely reconsider their policies.
