Teleworking desirable, study says

The results of an upcoming survey by Greenfield Online Inc. for Polycom Inc. found that 21 per cent of 1,000 people surveyed passed up jobs that involved frequent travel.

In addition, 64 per cent of respondents said high-quality, interactive video communications would be a viable alternative to face-to-face meetings. Moreover, 44 per cent said telecommuting enables them to work hours of their choice, and 39 per cent said it saves commuting time.
