National Telework Week, presented by Telework Exchange and underwritten by Cisco, will begin on Feb. 14th and run until Feb. 18th. The idea behind this campaign is to encourage agencies, organizations, and individuals to work from home (telework), improving productivity while reducing energy and commuter costs. The concept of going green by working from home is one small step in the right direction.

On the National Telework Week website, 38,862 people have pledged to telework this week. They have calculated that this has saved a little over 3.5 million pounds of pollutants, and $2.7 million in commuting costs!

Lets take a look at some of the benefits of “Teleworking”:

  • Operational efficiencies, sustainability, and real estate savings
  • Recruiting new talent and retention
  • Business continuity
  • Work/life balance
  • Commuter cost savings, reduction of traffic and greenhouse gas emissions

Teleworking has grown in the past few years, mostly due to the development of new technologies. Mobile computing, collaboration tools, and remote access have made teleworking much easier.

For those of you who already telework on a regular basis – what do you find to be the biggest benefit to teleworking?
