Abstract (Translated): 
The introduction of telework in organizations has been used as an example of policy to improve urban mobility, through the reduction in the frequency and duration of trips between home and the workplace. However, telework does not seem to be catching on among businesses and workers, so that the intended improvements are not being achieved. Mobility in urban areas could be improved by increased interest of companies and workers to adopt this way of working, but this is necessary to clarify what is teleworking, what forms have and how they can benefit the parties involved, besides indicating weaknesses and how to minimize them. The ultimate purpose of this paper is to analyze the causes of adoption of telework and its promotion by organizations offering recommendations for proper implementation.
