Telecommuting, abbreviated as remote work, future of work arrangement, teleworking, telecommuter, work from home, flexible office, and mobile work are different terms used to refer to the same working arrangement where employees don’t commute to an off-site location, such as a downtown office building, store, or factory. Some companies may describe their telecommuting arrangements as ‘telecommuter sharing’ or ‘telecommuter pool’.
