The recent announcements by Yahoo! and Best Buy regarding telecommuting have sparked heated discussion over flexible work policies and their value to both employers and employees. Mercer’s US Compensation Policies and Practices Survey sheds light on trends in flexible work policies and how other organizations are addressing these issues. More than 620 employers responded to the most recent survey, released in 2012.
