Latest figures show that 28.7 million Americans now telecommute. And these are not just with the hippest, coolest companies leading the way. No – one of the biggest users of telecommuters is the U.S. government. In the U.S Patent and Trademark Office alone, 3.609 employees participate in some form of telecommuting. USPTO Director Margaret Peterlin recently told Congress they will encourage more employees to telecommute. She said their experience shows teleworking results in “greater employee productivity, higher levels of sustained performance, reduced traffic congestion and air pollution, and reduced real estate costs.” She added that the USPTO employees who telework collectively save more than 613,000 gallons of gas per year and save more than $1.8 million annually in fuel costs.
