Thanks so much for sharing your always important insights, Donna-Luisa. You hit the proverbial nail on the head with one word: “accountable”!

At a fundamental core level telework is all about accountability. Moreover, it’s more likely to fall into the category of a “zero sum game” so to speak. Employees who work remotely are either highly accountable or not. Telework can’t work effectively without employee accountability, which further builds trust between managers/supervisors and teleworkers. Therefore, accountability begets trust, which begets successful telework. Plain and simple. Again, I’m grateful for your valuable feedback and positive social engagement, DL.
