More Americans are working from home, even if they aren’t doing it very often, according to a recent survey by WorldatWork.

The proliferation of high-speed connectivity and hand-held devices—as well as gas prices—is fueling the trend.

People telecommuting at least one day per month:

 2006       8%

 2008      11%

Odds are, the numbers will continue to grow. Why? Of the employees who believe they have tasks that could be done at home, 54% believe their employers would be willing to allow them to work at home at least some of the time.
