Join us for Telework Week 2012, the second-annual effort to encourage agencies, organizations, and individuals to pledge to telework on March 5-9, 2012.

 

Why? Telework is a win-win opportunity for agencies, organizations, employees, and the environment. Telework supports:


Meeting the Federal telework law requirements - Telework Enhancement Act of 2010

Real estate savings - Presidential Memorandum on Disposing of  Unneeded Federal Real Estate

Sustainability - Executive Order 13514

  Business continuity

• Improved productivity

Personnel recruitment and retention

• Work/life balance and commuter savings

Reduction of traffic, greenhouse gas emissions, and wear and tear on public transportation

 

During Telework Week 2011, nearly 40,000 pledged, saving $2,730,229 on commuting costs, gaining back 148,692 hours into their day, and removing 1,818 tons of pollutants from the air, while refraining from driving 3,764,001 miles.
