Donabeth Winslow of Hollis works for Unum but seldom goes in to the office. Winslow is a telecommuter, a person who works at home but is connected the company's headquarters by a personal computer. Starting with a small experimental group, Unum has found that telecommuters accomplish more work and suffer less work-related stress. Working at home allows Winslow to stay focused on her work, without the usual office distractions, and to fashion her workday to suit her needs. Sue McDougall, who supervises seven home-based workers at Unum, says that most workers who have tried the work-at-home option would not want to go back to the traditional system and that they have increased productivity from 10 to 30 percent. A second major advantage for the company is that it saves on office space.
