Telecommuting is an employment relationship whereby employees do not commute to a central office location, but instead work remotely using technology to communicate and share information with colleagues and employers. Telecommuting arrangements often vary depending on the workplace. In some arrangements, employees may never come into a central office. While in others, employees may only telecommute a few days per week or month.  Telecommuting can lead to greater employee satisfaction and productivity; however, some employers may find that working frequently outside the office diminishes team building and brainstorming.
