Impact of Telecommuting on Workers, Employers, and Society
According to a study released by Access Markets International Partners, an industry-leading market intelligence consulting firm, "wireless data and internet solutions is expected to skyrocket in the next four years, creating substantial opportunities for wireless device, application, and service providers" (AMI, 2000). In addition, Access Markets International Partners projects that the commercial user base will nearly double, every two years, rising from 3.7 million in 2001 to over 26.4 million in 2006 (AMI, 2000).
Telecommuting is a relatively new concept, especially when one considers that the term was introduced less than thirty years ago. With the evolution of this style of work, many advantages and disadvantages have been brought to the attention of managers, employees, and even the greater society. One thing remains constant, however, when considering all of the effects of telecommuting on the workplace; telecommuting and other alternative work environments are here to stay. There will likely never be a day when all workers engage in telecommuting, and this is simply not feasible. However, as telecommuting becomes more widespread and more employees and employers become comfortable with this option, the numbers of telecommuters are likely to continue to increase. As with most things in life, preparation, planning, and communication are the keys to ensuring a successful telecommuting experience for both managers and employees.
