@Work Pilot a Success
In 2007, Duke Energy expanded its telecommuting pilot to a more formalized program called "@Work," in which participants worked from home an average of three or more days a week. Future participants will use shared workspace when they are in the office. Because the pilot resulted in stable productivity and enhanced employee satisfaction, @Work is being expanded in 2008. Over the long-term, we expect to see lower facility costs and reduced carbon emissions also resulting from this program.
