Experts Discuss Telework with Employers; Presentations Available on County Website

The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce; Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Commuter Connections Program; and Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Commuter Services Section sponsored a workshop for employers interested in learning more about telework and its impact on productivity and employee morale.

Recent media reports about telework have prompted discussions about whether this alternative work arrangement benefits employers. Experts on telework explained what factors businesses and organizations should consider in making telework decisions and the benefits and challenges of telework. Local employers who are successfully implementing telework programs also discussed their experiences.

The workshop presentations are available on the Commuter Services website.
