Telecommuting is particularly popular with the IT set. 82 of the 2011 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For already offer it—making it tough to compete for talent if a company doesn’t. Flexible working arrangements were also one of the three job perks that could keep a discontented IT professional from jumping ship. In fact, 33 percent of IT workers said they would be willing to take a 10 percent pay cut if they could work remotely. Another intriguing finding: Job listings offering telecommuting as an option attract three to six times more applicants.
