A survey by the public-private teleworking partnership Telework Exchange has concluded that encouraging those who can work from home to do so for two days a week, rather than commute into work, would save 9.7 billion gallons of gas or $38.2bn.
This is an interesting statistic. Workers certainly care if they can save money.
But, this doesn’t pass the “what’s in it for me” test when it comes to selling your boss.
Business owners already have enough hassles with employees, they want to know what THEY save. If teleworkers don’t think this through, they’re making more of an argument to be outsourced by a virtual assistant than anything else!
