Fear over Flex-Time

Cube Monkeys: A Handbook for Surviving the Office Jungle

“Most employees feel there is more pressure than usual to be in the office. They feel as if that jacket needs to be on the back of their office chair at 8 at night because everyone is trying to prove that they’re indispensable.

Blame it on the recession. Flex-time employees, those who work alternate schedules that included working at home or around their children’s school hours, have become more skittish. Those who work outside the workplace often feel as if they’re not growing. Stay-at-home workers often work longer hours than their on-site counterparts, but some are not sure their colleagues know.”

While telecommuting is a great concept it doesn’t change the fact that most managers want to see their employees “working” in the office. The problem is getting to the office, which is usually tedious at best. For those who have looked at telecommuting as an option to ease their commute, there is a better solution – Commuter Swap. By living closer to your workplace, you’ll have less of a commute and still be able to participate fully in the office environment. Keeping both you and your boss happy!
