Teleworking, also known as telecommuting, means using information technology and telecommunications to replace work-related travel. Simply put, it means working at home or closer to home. With teleworking, employees work at home, a local telework center, or an employer’s satellite office one or more days per week. Communication is accomplished by phone, fax, email, and teleconferencing. Regionally, more than 500,000 workers are going to work simply by picking up the phone or turning on their computers. This workplace alternative pays real dividends for area businesses and their employees, while reducing traffic congestion and air pollution, increasing the area’s economic vitality, and bolstering overall quality of life.
