From Telecommute Connecticut! website: "We used telecommuting to drive down the square-feet-per-employee costs. And when you can close an entire office it is more than just their personal space, you save on common space as well. It is OK if you can close a cubicle. It’s more helpful if you can close an entire office." - Bryan Barber, Vice President of Operations, CIGNA
