The American lifestyle has changed and employers should/need to change too. I work for a Fortune 500 company that has closed down all and I do mean all our offices globally and put EVERYONE to work at home. They have happier, more productive employees who take much less sick time and actually get more done. Have you heard of WORK /LIFE BALANCE? Life is not just about work...... We are not here to be slaves to work. It should flow with our lives and it does now for me... The technology is there and my company is saving a fortune. So am I on makeup, panty hose, corporate clothes, trendy haircuts etc. etc. I'm happier and more productive at everything. I have time to exercise now, cook and do all the things I didn't have time for before. Plus - It's safer! Think about it CORPORATE AMERICA you could SAVE AN ABSOLUTE FORTUNE and buy that bigger yacht!
