    #19 'teleworking staff to provide an *hourly* breakdown of the work they've done on their telework day(s)' -- What does an *hourly* breakdown consist of?

    #20 I appreciate this mindful reply, @David Grinberg! I couldn't agree more.

    #19 Thanks, as always @Teagan Geneviene, for sharing your important insights. I think requesting an hourly breakdown of work falls into the "micromanaging" category whether working in the office or remotely. We're not in grade school anymore, thus don't treat us that way. This actually defeats one the key principle of telework, which is establishing a strong bond of trust and accountability between the manager and employee. In my book, it's all about results, and only results. If the results are poor then micromanage as needed or withdraw the telework option. But give teleworkers the "benefit of the doubt" unless or until they prove otherwise.

    I would counsel managers that as long as the teleworker is a high performer, who exceeds expectations, then there should be no need for a supervisor to treat the person like a child. Hopefully, this type of over-the-top managing of remote work will ease in due time. Otherwise, companies will lose out to competitors who offer more reasonable management of flexible work options. Wishing you all the best, Teagan!

    Great post, @David Grinberg. Unfortunately I'm seeing a push toward requiring teleworking staff to provide an *hourly* breakdown of the work they've done on their telework day(s), but not on in-office days.

    Very true.."management resistance and entrenched bureaucracy." Reminds me of Douglas McGregor's Theory X.
    This assumes that employees dislike working and need to be directed. Great balance approach in discussing telecommuting. Thanks David for sharing

    #14 I appreciate your excellent feedback @Phillip Hubbell. I believe that virtual workplaces will be the new normal in the coming years and decades as high-tech work tool make remote work easier and more cost effective for all parties -- not to mention all the other benefits. As noted, telework simply makes good business sense. Thanks again for sharing your important insights.

    #13 Thanks so much, @Tetyana Stadnyk, for sharing your valuable feedback which is most appreciated. You raise a good point for which employers need to be aware. However, it strikes me that the "pros" vastly outweigh the "cons" for employers who implement telework programs for eligible employees. It's simply a win-win outcome. Thanks again.

    I think that telecommuting or -working becomes imperative as more and more jobs become contractual instead of full time hires. If you want to engage people outside of your immediate geographical area, it will be difficult if not impossible to get people to relocate their families for a six month engagement with zero guarantee of full time employment.

    There is one bad side of it, @David Grinberg - some companies use this telework, remote and internet way of organizing business and recruit employees from countries with low income, pay them salary which could be slightly over their average, but still not worthy of their real talent :) But overall article is nice - I agree :-)

    #11 Thanks for your kind words, @Michele Williams, which are most appreciated. I've been a major proponent of telework for several years now and it's refreshing to see it catching on more in business and government. Remote work makes a major positive difference in the work lives of those who leverage this flexible work option. Thank goodness there are an increasing number of good managers and employers who clearly recognize the benefits of telework as a win-win for the company and employee alike.

    @David Grinberg, thanks not only for making the business case for telework, but also for including the human side of making effective and fulfilling work more compatible with people's family and personal lives. Telework, if implemented correctly, can level the playing field for human being, women and men, who would benefit from more flexibility in their work lives,

    #8 Thanks for your kind words and humility, @William Rakow, I am truly flattered -- and ditto that on my end, as YOU are an American hero. You are a true patriot, Billy, as a Vietnam vet who served his nation with valor. There's no higher honor in my book than military service. I feel fortunate to call you my friend, as you have some many connections and contacts (tens of thousands), which speaks volumes about your character and success as a businessman. Remember, Billy, I'm just a lowly scribe, one of countless millions of bloggers in a vast blogosphere of writers. Nevertheless, your inspirational words mean a lot to me. Thank you, again, kind sir. Talk soon.

    #3 Thanks again, @Phil Friedman, as your endorsements of my writing means a lot to me. Yes, it's true I've lived and worked in the nation's capital area since attending the University of Maryland in the early 1990s -- but please don't hold that against me. However, my true roots are in the Empire State, as I'm a native New Yorker by birth and upbringing. Perhaps that helps explain the "common sense" to which you so kindly refer and to which I so greatly appreciate.

    @David Grinberg, I think telework can be ideal in many instances. Actually, that's what I've been searching for without much luck due to the area I live in. I'm not giving up because I do feel at some point, sooner than later- I will find a good fit. I don't mind if I have to travel 25% of the time but I know it works because that is how my husband conducts 50% of his own business. Good article/Topic!

    #2 Thank you, @Phil Friedman, for your sharing your exemplary insights. You make many excellent points, as usual, with which I agree. And thanks for reminding me about the so-called "Results-Only Work Environment" or ROWE, of which telework is one part. I plan to blog about ROWE soon because the bottom line, as you so wisely articulate, is all about results and only results. Thanks again, my friend.
