Telecommuting and Your Business

Last year, I wrote about the pros and cons of working from my home (based near Portland, Oregon).  I discussed benefits, such as taking a break from being a writer and editor by lying on my bed, and making my own hours.

It’s a timely discussion now, considering Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer’s decision to end telecommuting at her company.

I’m only a quasi-telecommuter now.  My writing and editing business, Enlighten Writing, has an office at AmberGlen Parkway in Hillsboro, Oregon.  I still work at my home office, but I spend just as much time at my actual office.

I think that telecommuting should always be an option for businesses, but many employees were clearly abusing the perk at Yahoo!, and I agree with Mayer’s decision.

What do you think?  Is telecommuting an option for you?  Or do you agree with Marissa Mayer?
