Teleworking could save millions of workers from “swineflu”

I’ve mentioned before that I am a big advocate of teleworking for amny reasons: work/life balance, climate change and now personal survival in a potential pandemic environment.

Working from home means people are not on crowded trains or buses, that they are not dragging themeselves into work when they are sick and contagious and they can still continue to provide productive labour services to their employer. We know it is easier to maintain an hygenic environment in a home rather than a large office building with recycled air conditioning and potentially infectious people. I am wondering how many employers are seriously looking at tele working models for their employees or contract workers as part of a wider pandemic plan.
