ty-seven percent of employers report that their organization offers telecommuting in some form, according to a recent survey of Telecommuting, Flextime and Dress Code practices by BLR. Of those companies, two-thirds have offered telecommuting for 3 years or more.

The survey also found that flextime has been implemented at many more companies in the past 4 years. BLR’s current survey results show that 88% of responding companies allow some form of flextime to exempt employees, a significant increase over the 64% of respondents who had such a policy in our survey conducted in late 2006. For nonexempt employees, 66% offer a form of flextime, as compared to 58% in 2006.

Fifty-nine percent of companies reported having a relaxed or very relaxed dress code for exempt employees. This is surprisingly slightly less than the 65% of organizations who indicated that they had relaxed dress codes in 2006.

The survey, which included approximately 1,200 responses, was conducted by BLR's HR Daily Advisor in June and July of 2010.
