A recent survey conducted by job search website, Dice, shows just how much some IT leaders want to telecommute.  In fact, 35% of IT workers said they would take a 10% pay cut to work from home.

A CIO.com article featured these survey results, but argued why you should actually be paid more to work from home.  Here are a couple benefits to the employer:

  • Productivity will rise (no co-workers to chat with, no traffic to make you late)
  • You save the employer money (one less person using office supplies, food, etc.,  reduced infrastructure costs, less office space needed)

What do you think – is this Hype (your organization would never support telecommuting this much) or Ripe (this is something that is happening more and more in your organization)?
