On Monday, we ran a poll asking of the 100 companies listed on Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2008, how many allow employees to telecommute or work at home?
Participation was down a little for this poll (not sure why, maybe I should run a poll to find out) with 49 readers voting.
The answer “All of Them” won with 17 votes and “23” came in second with 12 votes. I guess you could have used a hint on this one. The correct answer was 84. 84 of the 100 Best Companies to Work For 2008 allow employees to telecommute or work at home.
I predict that within 2 years that number will be 100. With energy costs and weather conditions in some areas, it will be an easily afforded perk that will draw talented employees to companies.
