Telecommuting means working from home via powerful telecommunications and computer networks, whereas job sharing means two part-time employees perform the same job. Traditionally, these jobs could not be performed at home due to the lack of computing and telecommunications infrastructure. However, with rapid technological development, telecommuting is becoming very popular with many employers and employees. Employee teams are a group of employees with complementary skills who work together towards a specific goal. If such a team has a responsibility for a whole work process or part that produces a product of service for an end-user, then this team is known as an autonomous work group. The team is autonomous because of the control aspect they have in the performance of their job. Autonomous work groups are also known as self-directed teams, self-managed teams or high-performance teams.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
