'I'm working from home today … ' Telecommuting trends for veterinary practice managers
Telecommuting is fairly common outside of veterinary medicine but can be more difficult in businesses such as veterinary practices that are regularly open to clients. However, the results from a survey by the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA) suggest that telecommuting in one form or another is a viable option for practice managers. Close to half the respondents (42 percent) report that they spend either some or all of their time working remotely. An additional 33 percent expressed interest in telecommuting, although they do not currently do so.
