In the Flexible Work and Well-Being Study by Phyllis Moen and Erin L. Kelly, directors of the Flexible Work and Well-Being Center at the University of Minnesota, they find "remarkable evidence" that ROWE -- a results-only work environment -- "has a statistically significant impact on some (but not all) measures of employees' schedule control and decisions about where and when they work, their health and wellness, and their work pressures and commitment."

The authors note that "the evidence is particularly convincing because we examine changes within people over the six-month period and see different patterns of change for ROWE and comparison employees."

executive summary of the report is online. The full report is on the site of the university's Flexible Work and Well-Being Center, which offers other resources and research.
