While there is clearly a market for remote workers, virtual teams, even virtual assistants, a company that offers telecommuting as a white-collar perk is just making more trouble and work for itself. When it goes well, nobody notices or cares; when it goes badly, telecommuting days are treated as vacation days.
Was it remote working that failed, or the application of an across-the-board/one-size-fits-all policy? Remote working is built on trust, and trust is built on relationship, not policy. What determines whether remote working will work is whether the management and team relationships are working.
