Telecommuting employees

A lot of San Francisco residents are going in for telecommuting after an accident destroyed a section of an elevated highway that connects traffic from the San Francisco-Bay Bridge last week. Most companies in the area such as Sun Microsystems and Intel are fine with their employees working from home and encourage their employees to work in a manner that is the most productive for them. Sun Microsystems has 56% of its 34,494 employees working either from home or from a satellite office, with around 3,200 employees working from home four days a week. The company has been able to save drastically on real estate costs, as much as $67.8 million last year alone and $387 million since the project began in 2001.
