Celebrate National Telework Week: March 4 – 8, 2013

telework

This week is the third annual Telework Week, sponsored by the Mobile Work Exchange (formerly the Telework Exchange).  It’s a chance for all organizations, both public and private, to  join the telework movement, whether that means trying it for the first time,  expanding existing telework programs or practicing your disaster recovery and COOP planning.  Interested individuals or organizations can pledge their commitment to telework by going to the Mobile Work Exchange website.

 Last year, more than 71,000 pledged, saving $5,651,890 on commuting costs, gaining back 251,774 hours into their day, and removing 3,453 tons of pollutants from the air, while refraining from driving 6,413,006 miles.

Telework Week provides a good opportunity to get your leaders and organizations involved in telework.    Leaders and employees may find that work practices used next week should be continued throughout the year.

 Happy celebrating,

Jason
