MarketWatch: Remote workers are NOT watching daytime TV in their pajamas

It may sound counter-intuitive, but employees are apt to work more efficiently and collaboratively when operating remotely, a new study released Tuesday by video and voice collaboration technology company Polycom, Inc. and Human Resources executive network and research firm Future Workplace found.

If you can't trust a study released by a video and voice collaboration technology company to tell you the true merits of video and voice collaboration technology, then who can you trust?

We now know that there aren't any remote workers watching daytime TV in their pajamas. That's certainly a relief. Or is it?

I was amused by a comment from my daughter. "I have an awful lot of work to get through tomorrow so I'll be working from home." She meant it too.

I believe her. I do think many can be more productive at home.

That said, there are also many who will not. I worked at a video game company. There were quite a few people who would play too many games at work. Pretty sure they would play even more at home!

But hey, at least they probably wouldn't be watching daytime TV in their pajamas. So that's something I guess. ;)
