This thesis is an inquiry into the practice of telecommuting within organizations in the United States. The analysis of this topic will include the examination into the history and background of telecommuting, the advantages and disadvantages that this type of program proposes, as well as the factors that should be evaluated when developing and implementing a formal program. The final synopsis will offer suggestions and recommendations on what to include when developing and implementing a formal telecommuting policy/agreement. Because this subject is a relatively new practice, more research and evaluation needs to be performed in this area before additional progress can be made. The conclusion offers the names of organizations that are devoted to studying and promoting this workplace initiative.
