Question by Claudio F: Is remote working going to be the next big thing?
Is working from home going to be the next big step in the future? I know that working from home makes people more productive because they don’t have to commute and the company saves money too. If you are a computer expert tell what you think about it, and tell me what the most successful jobs from remote will be.

I don’t know. It’s been in the works for a long time and for some jobs you just have to be at the worksite and with others you don’t. My next door neighbor worked at home for the last 3 years. It worked fine for her and her employer because she was a “resource” person, where people sent her e-mails or phoned her to get their technical questions answered. With her, there weren’t unusual expenses or security concerns. She went in every Thursday and for giving and receiving training, special meetings, etc. My son hasn’t had an “office” to report to for the last 10 years or so. He works out of his home and services stores. The company provides car, computer, blackberry/cell phone and keeps in touch with home office by conference call and cell phone. Depends on the kind of work that needs to be done and if there are privacy/security concerns., etc.
