    One big advantage with telework is recruiting. Employees value it and it is a cheap “benefit” to offer. But even more, it allows us to recruit the best talent from the nation without requiring them to relocate. The drawback us that some significant fraction of people hired are not capable of working in a telework environment.

    The state of Delaware raised our engineers workers comp over 400% last year. Due to this we are now hiring engineers in Texas and in other states that use virtual connections to do our equipment validation and testing. Our remote employees don’t have to deal with the income tax in Delaware, and our remote employees don’t have the high workers’ compensation overhead. It does not make a difference where our engineers re located as long as they have a virtual network connection. The workplace is changing very quickly.
