WORK NAKED: Eight Essential Principles for Peak Performance in the Virtual WorkplaceCynthia C. Froggatt. Jossey-Bass, $24.95 (292p) ISBN 0-7879-5390-3

Consultant Froggatt explores employer and employee attitudes about working from home as the traditional office diminishes in importance. While most employees claim greater productivity at home, some employers harbor doubts. To address these divergent views, Froggatt recommends establishing formal programs for offsite workers that consider workload, communication issues, goals and technology—as exemplified by Ernst & Young and SAS. With charts for tracking meetings, communication and commuting time, this guide targets managers who supervise offsite employees. The appealing title and Froggatt's connections to major business media will yield a strong start. (June)
