Lately there has been a growing trend in working from home agreements. It makes a lot of sense, if you think about it with Skype and a high-speed connecting you don’t really need to be in the office to work on most IT jobs. Slightly more difficult if you’re a pilot though.
Tim Ferriss is a big proponent of working from home (or wherever you want in the world), and I recently read a cool story in his book of how one man managed to take some vacations in China for 30 days without anyone noticing at the office (!?). Pretty cool IMHO.
This said here is a very nice infogrpahic I found about this very topic today. Time to ask your boss for some working days at home?
