    Jacob, I agree with most your points. The reason management may not open to the idea of telecommuting is because fear of losing control. One important element to managing is measurement. If management can clearly quantify the output of an employee, then it does not really matter that much whether the employee work from home or office. The difficulty is some job cannot be easily measured. Then, the concern to managers is how do they know the telecommuting employees are working from home? I am going to shamelessly promote my solution It is a productivity measurement solution that’s a perfect fit for telecommuting purpose. 4 users starter plan is free so check it out!
