An analysis of employee perceptions regarding telework initiatives in non -profit organizations

by Williams, Annette Y., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2009, 152 pages; 3372252


Alternative work practices in nonprofit organizations are practically taboo as managers struggle with the fear of permitting employees to work in a variety of locations excluding their organization's home office. In this research paper, telework perceptions are evaluated from employee and supervisory perspectives in three nonprofit organizations. One hundred and eighteen employees and their supervisors participated and all provided their perceptions of alternative work practices and the perceived impact it has on improved work performance. Study results reflected that there is a correlation between increased work performance and the perception of telework. Results also reflected that managers support alternative work practices.
