Abstract

This research tries to explore the perception of Nepali IT employees towards telecommuting in a qualitative paradigm. It tries to dig into the  opportunities  that  the  Nepali  context offers  for  the  adoption of telecommuting  concept  and  identify  the  potential  pitfalls.  The individual interview method was chosen for the data collection. The semi-structured guideline was followed. Convenience sampling was used. Four employees working in IT companies inside the Kathmandu Valley were interviewed. 100 % of the participants reported that this concept is advantageous in the case of Nepal. Flexibility, freedom in doing  work,  increases  in  productivity,  work-life  balance, and  cost-effectiveness    were    found    to    be    perceived    advantages    of telecommuting in the context of Nepal. Worsening of communication and lack of infrastructure,  disturbances in the house are perceived disadvantages.  Furthermore,  the  inclusion  of  wide  diversity  of workforce is the prominent opportunity of telecommuting while the implementation part is the main hurdle as it is a new concept in the case of Nepal.Presidential System
