Employees, organizations and society alike should grow the virtual workplace, as the multiple, tangible benefits of telework for each of these three stakeholders largely outweigh the costs. To help stakeholders benefit from the virtual workplace, the authors analyze four key issues: telework adoption, implementation, tracking and impacts. They develop the comprehensive EOS framework to examine both the interaction among employees, organizations and society, and the linkages among telework impacts, tracking, implementation and adoption. Unique features of the book include an integrative framework for increasing telework adoption; practical tips - specific to each stakeholder - on how best to implement and measure telework; and an analysis of original survey data exploring the virtual workplace adoption decision. Readership for this book includes academic experts on telecommuting, policymakers involved in transportation, human resource or environmental policies, and managers and employees considering telework.

Review:

Foreword by Scott McNealy `The authors have produced an extraordinarily useful book on the numerous facets of the complex teleworking phenomenon. Although their pro-telework position is clear (and persuasively justified), their discussion of each element is thoughtful, balanced, and carefully referenced. Their conceptual paradigm offers a very helpful way to organize and synthesize the vast and growing literature on teleworking, and they have employed it to masterful effect. They have succeeded in producing a work that is equally valuable and relevant to organizations, individual employees, public planners, and academic scholars - no small feat.' -- Patricia L. Mokhtarian, University of California, Davis, US `At TELUS, teleworking has become an important part of our operating framework. Thousands of our team members telework on a part-time basis and hundreds of our team members telework on a full-time basis. The individual, environmental, social and financial benefits achieved through telework are compelling and real. This book by the Haskayne School of Business offers comprehensive insights that will help TELUS and hopefully many other enterprises to fully realize the great benefits of telework.' -- Josh Blair, TELUS, Canada `The first integrative analysis of the virtual workplace's many contributions to sustainable development: a must read for strategists in firms and governments.' -- Ans Kolk, University of Amsterdam Business School, The Netherlands `This book is a great reference for senior executives looking to implement telework to enhance their business. As the leading provider of managed IP communications services in North America, MegaPath supports the telework programs of hundreds of companies with IT remote access VPN services. This book addresses the many challenges these companies have faced and the benefits they have derived from telework programs.' -- Greg Davis, MegaPath, US
