Telecommuting Initiative is a policy in Democracy 3 that encourages citizens to work from home. This reduces car usage and can put less pressure on infrastructure.
Telecommuting, or 'working from home' is seen as desirable because it reduces the pressure on the transport infrastructure, and can be an improvement to people's quality of life. It's also welcomed by parents. This policy gives tax incentives to companies supporting this option.
