InfoWorld: A new Dice.com poll has found that 35 percent of IT workers say they would be willing to reduce their salaries by up to 10 percent for the privilege of telecommuting. On average, IT staffers were willing to take a $7,800 pay cut to be able to work from home.
Staffing experts say that telecommuters save employers money and increases the number of potential job candidates. "Talent retention is the name of the game," said Dice.com managing director Alice Hill. "Here's one of the easiest, least expensive solutions and it has yet to be fully exploited."
