A little about telecommuting:

Telecommuting is a work arrangement in which you do not commute to a central place of work. You can work outside the office, often working from home. You may visit the office at regular intervals to attend meetings and touch base with your team. Several organizations are now turning any corner of the world into workspaces. This is a testament to the ongoing global liberalization of the workspace. Urban transport is often a nightmare; the daily commute to work and then back home slow-cooks the cheer out of us; and the world can do with a little less pollution expelled by all the vehicles stumbling between homes and offices.

For CACTUS, telecommuting covers these facets:

Basic employment characteristics and terms:
