The text discussed many aspects of motivation and the application of motivation theories. I would like for you to discuss the following question(s):
Organizations are using telecommuting/working remotely on an increasing basis over the last 20 years. As with all things, this work structure has it benefits and issues. Please consider the following points and develop your answer.
Do you believe that more organizations should move towards telecommuting (assuming the nature of their business can accommodate it)? If yes, why so? If not, why and what do you suggest?
Can employees be properly motivated if they are working away from the office for a significant amount of time? If so, how? If not, what could be done? Additionally, do you think office/organization productivity would increase or decrease utilizing a telecommuting approach?
Regardless if you agree or disagree with telecommuting, what do you recommend that organizations should do in regards to motivating employees dealing with increasing work-life “imbalance”?
