Apparently, a good number of workers do telecommute in the nude according to this survey reported on by the Jim Ware of the Future of Work Blog (through the UPI).
The survey by Insight Express and SonicWALL (how to do people come up with these survey ideas anyway?) found that:
About 39 percent of respondents of both sexes said they wear sweats while working from home, but 12 percent of males and 7 percent of females wear nothing at all, according to a survey of 941 remote and mobile workers worldwide.
As Jim points out, it is hard to know when these numbers are inflated and people are just claiming to engage in such behavior, but it is somewhat bizzare nonetheless.
And I'm not sure that I'm so comfortable with this aspect of the future of work.
