Small Business Tip of the Day: Telecommuting, the Green-Eyed Monster
Jealousy

In most cases, employees would jump at the chance to work from home, but could that benefit ultimately breed bad blood in your business? According to a survey from Kona, 70 percent of workers say they would rather telecommute than work in the office, and if you survey those between the ages of 35 and 44, the numbers are even higher (81 percent). However, in offices that allow employees to work away from the office, the survey found 57 percent of respondents said that allowing remote work spurred jealousy among those who didn’t enjoy the privilege; for workers over the age of 65, the numbers jump to 65 percent.
