I would like to get everyone's take on making "Work-from-home" the new standard for IT employees - main advantages are: reduction of back-office expenses (i.e. Lease costs, Utility costs, furniture costs, communication costs, employee retention/moral problems, etc.). I have been working from home for the past 8 years and have rarely been on-site. In most cases, a blended on/off site approach is started and then productivity/performance is measured and then more off site is added (I.e. 2 weeks on site followed by 8 weeks off site, etc.). I have satisfied customers and customers that have shaved their overall expenses by not paying for travel and reducing their total office-complex spend.
