Teleworking on the rise in Atlanta
- Teleworking is the most popular alternative to traditional commuting – overtaking carpooling
- 17 percent of teleworkers do so on a full-time basis, this does not include self-employed individuals
- Commute times and distances in Atlanta have decreased (great news for those still stuck on the road)
“We were really pleased to see teleworking make such significant gains in the region,” said Kevin Green, executive director of The Clean Air Campaign, “but we weren’t necessarily surprised. Getting telework to be accepted by more employers as a workplace strategy has been a major emphasis for our organization and its partners. It’s great to see that work paying off. Telework is a ‘win-win’ strategy whose time has come.” Source: The Clean Air Campaign
