Interestingly, when broken down by seniority, the same feelings hold. 86 percent of Managerial, Director, VP and other Executive Level employees indicated that the flexibility is good for the workplace and 85 percent of Entry Level and Mid-level employees while agree.

"More and more companies across different industries are open to telecommuting situations. It's a way to attract or retain top employees," said FPC CEO & President Ron Herzog. "Not all positions lend themselves to successful telecommuting. For the situation to work, there must be an upfront understanding of the expectations on both sides. The bottom line is that it's all about productivity. If the employer can see the productivity of the employee, and the employee feels that they can be focused offsite, then it's a win, win situation."
