This concept is definitely catching on! Best Buy has been recognized in numerous national media for implementing CultureRx's Results-Only Work Environment: ROWE. It's the ultimate workplace flexibility program open to ALL regardless of marital status, gender, age, dependents, etc. Employees are free to do whatever, whenever as long as the work gets done.
