Statewide Telework Day

Posted By: Adeel Lari on 8/17/2009

I’m jealous. No. Envious? Hmm. I admire? Yes. Let’s go with that.

I admire the fact that Governor Timothy M. Kaine has announced a statewide Telework Day in the state of Virginia set for August 3, 2009. 

His announcement recognizes that “telework is a family-friendly, business-friendly public policy that promotes workplace efficiency, reduces strain on transportation infrastructure, and provides an opportunity to ‘green’ Virginia. We encourage organizations and individuals in Virginia to take the Telework Day pledge and see how telework can help them improve productivity and business operations, while also benefiting the environment.”

Pretty well said. And admirable, indeed. What do you think? Could we do something like that in Minnesota?

Learn more about Telework Day here and send me your thoughts.

    • Virginia is a shining example of embracing telework for its myriad benefits to the individual, business, the community and the environment. I applaud their bold strides and hope other governments continue to emulate their efforts.

    • Greetings! I am an experienced telecommuter and think the goals of your site are amazing! My current job is 70 miles from my home, and while the drive is beautiful, I would rather dedicate my drive time to actually doing my job, rather than just getting to and from it! I am an excellent technical writer and business analyst who is looking to become a telecommuter again! I welcome any assistance you can offer me in my job search and will happily provide my resume and references upon request. Have an outstanding day, Susie 320-295-8962
