Telecommuting on the Rise in NYC Area

September, 2002


A survey by the New York Times Job Market found that both job seekers and hiring managers in the New York metropolitan area see telecommuting as a growing trend. One in five hiring managers (19%) say their company allows telecommuting. However, more than one-third of hiring managers (35%) expect more telecommuters in the workforce one year from now. “Because of September 11, they’re asking for it more than ever, because of safety concerns,” says one hiring manager.
