Check out this Working Mother article, "Working from home can be great for staffers and employers if it is done right." Ellek Kossek, PhD, researcher on the Work, Family and Health Network contributes that telecommuting is still misunderstood in the US. But the article goes on to describe how telecommuting workers can be some of the most productive employees, while gaining better work-life balance. Interestingly, it touches on healthier behaviors, such as eating better food and regaining time to exercise, some of the outcomes we are analyzing in our research study.
