There are different types of telecommuting based on the type of work. Jobs where employees perform all duties from home are relatively rare. In this case the company does not provide the employee with a desk. The most common form of working from home is alternating work. Here the employee alternates between telecommuting and working at the company, and also has a desk at the office. With mobile telecommuting, work is performed on the road, from changing locations, not from home. This form is typical for field staff such as agents or customer service representatives.
