Telework day

From: Telework Exchange

The Commonwealth of Virginia, Telework!VA, and Telework Exchange are
encouraging organizations and individuals to telework from home or a remote location on Monday, August 3, 2009 – Telework Day. WHY?
Telework is a win-win-win opportunity for organizations, employees, and the environment.

Telework supports:
Reduction of traffic, greenhouse gas emissions, and wear and tear on public
Business as usual
Personnel recruitment and retention
Real estate savings
Work/life balance and commuter-cost savings

On June 10, 2009, Virginia Governor Timothy Kaine issued an Executive Order to “green” Virginia – calling for reductions in energy consumption and efficiency in state government operations as well as a statewide Telework Day to save the energy of commuting.
