Telecommuting, or teleworking, is an alternative term for remote work. The word derives from “telecommunications”—the tools commonly used by remote workers, such as email, chat, video conferencing, and phones—and “commuting”—the journey into work for office workers.
The idea behind the term is that these tools negate the need for a physical commute and enable workers to carry out their jobs from wherever they are.
