English | 2008 | ISBN: 1847203892 | Pages: 261 | PDF | 2,7 MB
Employees, organizations and society alike should grow the virtual workplace, the authors argue, 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 they analyze four key issues: telework adoption, implementation, tracking and impacts.
The authors 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.
