Statistical population included all experts of Agricultural Organization in Alborz and Tehran provinces, Iran. Out of them 125 respondents were selected through stratified random sampling among townships of each province. Research instrument was a questionnaire that was assembled based on review literature method. Content and face validity of instrument were established by investigating the attitudes of specialists. Questionnaire reliability was estimated by calculating Cronbach's Alpha (α= 0.88). Findings showed that attitude level of 16.8 percent of respondents about teleworking was "low", 29.6 percent "relatively low" 42.4 percent “relatively high" and 11.2 percent was "high" as well. The relation between the "attitude towards teleworking" as dependent variable and "job interest" (r=-0.281) and employee understanding about recognition of professional competences by administrators (r= -0.244) was negative at 5% level. Likewise, the relation between dependent variable and “commitment to organization (r=-0.281) was negative at 1% level.
