Telecommuting vs. Telework: What's the Difference?
You'll notice as you go through this site that the terms "telecommuting"
and "telework" are used somewhat interchangeably. One of the FAQs in this site
addresses this issue - and as noted there, different people prefer
different terms for different reasons.
I realize that the term "telework" is probably the more grammatically
correct term, but the term "telecommuting" continues to be the more
commonly-used term - though even that is debatable according to some
people. In my opinion, life is too short to spend a lot of time and
energy worrying about these fine points of terminology. As the Nike
advertisements have always suggested, "Just do it!"
