Telework or Telecommuting means working at any alternative location other than your central or traditional worksite or office one to five days a week depending on the company policy. Telework is becoming an increasingly popular option for many employees and employers.

Next week, March 5th thru March 9th is telework week. The second-annual effort to encourage agencies, organizations and individuals to pledge to telework during this time. Take the pledge and save some money and help reduce a million pounds of pollutants from the environment.

A telework program is beneficial to the employer and employee while also helping the environment by reducing emissions and carbon footprint.  Below are some of the benefits of telework.

For Employers:

  • Increased employee productivity
  • Reduced real estate cost
