Companies that let 100 of their employees telecommute can save a cool $1 million a year while slashing their carbon footprint, according to a new study. Based on more than 250 case studies, the report suggests that each half-time teleworker saves his employer about $10,000 a year -- in electricity, overhead, reduced turnover and lost productivity -- and that telecommuting could save employees up to $6,800 -- mostly in gasoline costs along with parking, food and clothing costs.
