TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Ah, but when an employer hires an employee, is the employer
hiring someone to complete a defined set of tasks or someone
to contribute their talents to the organization 40+ hours a week?
These are two very different mindsets.
(The ability to work on projects as required is one of the attrac-
tions of contracting, though this benefit is probably overwhelmed
by marketing, overhead and downtime.)

I don't understand this magic number of 8 hours a day. If I'm more
productive at home and can complete my work in 6 hours instead of the 8
hours it would take me to complete the work at the office, why shouldn't I
just work 6 hours at home? For that matter, if I can complete the
responsibilities of my full-time job in 30 hours a week, why should I sit
around the office for another 10 hours a week?
