Well apparently telecommuting is my topic for the week (see other Telecommuting post).  I just read another interesting article about telecommuting.  This one is from Denise O’Berry on the allbusiness.com website.  She discusses some of the video conferencing software out there today.  I am not sure if I totally agree with everything that she says but I do think she is on the right track.

As I said in the previous post, I really think that remote employees and telecommuting are going to be huge topic in the next 5-10 years.  The questions are always going to be raised about communication and productivity but I think that many people are figuring out those issues now and we are seeing active case studies being created.  I personally believe that it is going to take a different type of oversight than what we have been used to but it is going to happen.

As the baby boomers leave the job world and the Internet generation join the ranks of the working many of the long held beliefs are going to be questioned.  I think it is going to be an interesting discussion and will have some wide reaching impacts.

I am a staunch believer that at least in some fields telecommuting is going to explode.  IT is a great example of an industry where it will take off.  With the resource issues in the industry, the speed at which the supporting technology is advancing, and the cost of energy continuing to rise it seems that it is only a time issue right now. 

This is an area where I definitely think that by utilizing the technology it will cause companies to be more efficient, effective, and profitable. 

Anyway, speaking of the technology, I just saw a great post by Scott Hanselman showing some of the new teleconferencing technology that he uses to assist in telecommuting.  With technology like this, I don’t think we’re too far away.
