Telework Slip

While the growing popularity of working remotely has been in the headlines recently, new research suggests the trend may be fizzling. A WorldatWork / Dieringer Research Group report found that the number of people teleworking in 2010 was 26.2 million, down from 33.7 million in 2008. The report cited a number of reasons for the decline, including high unemployment and workers’ anxiety about job security.
