Exploring Factors Underlying the Decision to Telework

Using inferential statistics, this study investigates factors underlying the decision to adopt telework. Data were obtained from an online survey, which collected information from 936 employees of a large, post-secondary institution in Ontario, Canada concerning their knowledge, experience, attitudes and perceptions regarding telework. The data gathered from the survey were used to examine the relationship between telework status and several suites of factors affecting telework adoption – namely, job and workplace characteristics, ability to telework, telework and other lifestyle choices, views on various issues, socio-demographic characteristics and colleague connections.
