Abstract

(from the chapter) Given the increasing availability of formal and informal access to teleworking and other flexible work arrangements, in this chapter our goal is to understand the kinds of psychological working conditions under which use of teleworking is more likely to enhance employee well-being. We will show that "good teleworking" or teleworking where use is likely to be related to favorable outcomes for the workers' well-being has several psychological job design characteristics. We draw on survey and interview data from a sample of 316 professional employees in two Fortune 500 firms. Our chapter emphasizes two main features of good teleworking.
