More than 60% of employees at Orlando, Fla.-based InCharge Debt Solutions work from home. Most of the staff at the nonprofit credit counseling agency spend their days on the phone; they can help clients just as effectively from home as they could from an office.

The payoffs have been impressive:

  • Home workers are about 4% more productive than they were in the office.
  • The company has saved 66% on office space and expenses.
  • Home workers take fewer breaks and sick days and are rarely late.
  • Employees annually save an average of $1,260 in fuel costs.
