October 05, 2006 (Computerworld) — Most companies now offer workers the option to work from home, satellite offices and other locations, according to a survey conducted by Philadelphia-based Yoh Services LLC, a provider of talent and outsourcing services.

The survey also found that most human resources managers expect the use of telecommuting to increase over the next two years.

“We learned that companies need to build a product that says, ‘if you come and work for us, here’s what you’re going to have: a casual work environment, a flexible schedule’ — whatever that may be,” said Jim Lanzalotto, vice president of strategy and marketing at Yoh. “Companies are realizing that in order to attract the best people to come work for their companies, they need to create an environment that’s conducive to do that.”
