What are the ingredients for telecommuting success?
Abstract: Like their for-profit counterparts, nonprofits are increasingly allowing employees to telecommute. Done right, work-at-home arrangements, either full time or on an occasional basis, can pay off for both employers and employees. But the organization will need to be proactive to avoid some potential pitfalls. This article discusses some of the characteristics of successful telecommuting, including having a good policy in place and communicating well with remote employees. A sidebar looks at how to select the right people and positions for telecommuting.
