Filed under Baseline - the CDC has just published a report on what companies should do if the US is hit with a major influenza attack. Among the many recommendations, they suggest implementing telecommuting if the death toll hits 90,000.
Not bad, not bad, let's go one step farther. How about 300 million Americans slowly dying from damage to the ecosystem? Can we implement telecommuting based on that? If you need a little help getting your program going (and a few reasons why it's a good business case), Sun has a nice packet on why telecommuting is the solution. True, you won't have the 90,000 dead to point to, but the guide is chock full of other great facts and figures.
