Telecommuting is on the rise. According to a recent article in the New York Times, more than 3.2 million American workers telecommute. That’s up 79% between 2005 and 2012.
The world of continuing education is no different: managers and senior leadership should extend the option to telecommute to employees who generate significant revenue.
