Telework (also called telecommuting) is working at home or a satellite office, telework center, or telecommunity center near home one or more days a week -- instead of commuting to the main office or place of business.
Employers around the world are using telework programs to boost productivity and reduce office and real estate costs. And because employees value the flexibility telework gives them, telework programs help employers keep valued staff and recruit qualified personnel.
The Oregon Department of Energy supports telework in Oregon, because it conserves fuel, relieves traffic congestion, and improves air quality -- and because it makes good business sense.
