Working at home on a computer connected to the office by modems and telephone lines instead of commuting to the office. Telecommuting saves time, cuts down on automobile use and pollution, and decreases stress. Some local and state governments actively encourage telecommuting to keep the number of commuters as low as possible. Most studies indicate that home workers are happier and more productive. However, some jobs do not lend themselves to telecommuting; welding and brain surgery are very difficult to do over the phone.
