Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
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.
