    Abstract

    La introducción del teletrabajo en las organizaciones se ha utilizado como ejemplo de política para lamejora de la movilidad de las ciudades y del entorno, a través de la reducción en la frecuencia y la duración de los desplazamientos entre el domicilio y el lugar de trabajo. Sin embargo, el teletrabajo no parece estarcalando entre empresas y trabajadores, por lo que las pretendidas mejoras no se están consiguiendo. La movilidad en los núcleos urbanos podría verse mejorada mediante un mayor interés de empresas y trabajadores por adoptar esta forma de trabajo, pero para ello es necesario aclarar qué es el teletrabajo, qué formas tiene y cómo se pueden beneficiar las partes implicadas, además de indicar sus debilidades y cómo minimizarlas. El propósito último de este trabajo es analizar las causas de adopción del teletrabajo y su promoción por las organizaciones, ofreciéndoles recomendaciones para su adecuada implantación. / 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 teleworkand its promotion by organizations offering recommendations for proper implementation.
