Putting Telecommuting in Context: The Effects of Individual and Group Context on Telecommuting Outcomes Sep 17, 2018 from 01:30 PM to 02:45 PM 502 Keller,
Organizations are increasingly turning to telecommuting as a way to reduce costs, boost employee productivity, attract and retain top talent, and help employees manage non-work demands. The rise in telecommuting has attracted the interest of researchers and has stimulated a growing number of studies aimed at better understanding the effects of telecommuting on employee outcomes. In general, this research suggests that telecommuting has small but generally beneficial effects on a number of proximal individual outcomes, such as perceived autonomy, as well as more distal outcomes, like job satisfaction and turnover. Yet, researchers have also noted the need to better understand the boundary conditions of these effects and, in particular, how the context impacts telecommuting outcomes. The goal of the current study is to cast light on three important contextual factors associated with telecommuting and to examine their impact on a broad set of proximal and distal outcomes in a large sample of home-based teleworkers.
