Why not telecommute?

With the number of tech jobs available to today, many of them are good candidates for telecommuting. Unfortunately, companies, like the one I work for, do not take advantage of the possibility. With good planning on the part of the company, it could decrease expenses incurred (office space, phones, etc) and increase the happiness of employees. Ok, I realize that companies might have to make some arrangements for employees who must come into work for meetings, etc. Maybe there could be a general room with temporary cubes where employees could bring their notebooks and get online. With today’s gas prices rising, it makes it an even more appealing opportunity for employees. Anyway, just some thoughts I was thinking on the drive home.
