A little history . . .

eWorkPlace, a Minnesota program, was first introduced in June, 2009, ending in June, 2011. In those two years, more than 4,200 employees from 48 Minnesota employers participated. And eWorkPlace helped demonstrate that flexible work is a win-win concept.In those two years it was shown to help reduce congestion during peak periods, increase employee productivity and improve voluntary retention. It reduced real estate costs for employers and saved employees time and money while boosting their quality of life. And it reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the need for costly infrastructure investments in our community.
