Is working remotely in your future? What percentage of your company works remotely now? How much do you think that may change five years from now?

There are already 34 million workers who telecommute at least occasionally in the U.S. According to Forrester research, this figure is expected to swell to 63 million by 2016, fueled by worldwide broadband adoption, better collaboration tools, and growing management experience. Some telecommuters claim they are even more productive than those who work in an office. For details and a more global view see this infographic from Staff.com. 

Is Telework the Future?If you telecommute or manage a remote staff you know you need cost-effective, easy-to-use conferencing that drives productivity and facilitates collaboration between teams.
