Companies are becoming more accepting of telecommuting and other remote-working arrangements, according to a recent survey released last week by Accountemps, a Robert Half International (NYSE: RHI) company.
A third of chief financial officers interviewed for the survey said remote work arrangements, such as telecommuting and working from satellite offices, have increased at their companies in the last three years.
“The prevalence of mobile technologies and wireless communication makes it easier for companies to support flexible work arrangements for their employees,” said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of RHI. ”Although not all positions are suited to remote work arrangements, for those that are, this option can help give professionals more control over their schedules and aid in recruitment and retention efforts.”
The survey was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on telephone interviews with 1,400 CFOs across the United States.
