Always.

Doesn't mean I'm going to work from home (although I often do, for my own convenience).

It stops it from being stolen if the office has been broken in to (happened to some of my colleagues … but not me).

I can continue to work if the office is unexpectedly unavailable - this has happened to me twice - once for severe weather and once for an evacuation due to a suspected terrorist device.

I can attend on-line meetings with my colleagues in foreign climes without having to stay in the office late or get in really early (I'm in the UK but I have colleagues in India and Hong Kong - our meetings tend to be quite short!)

Oh - and it's company policy (kept the least important until last Laugh | :laugh: )
