“Work is something you do, not someplace you go”

I smell a theme here.  One that I like a lot!  I think "National Telecommute Week" is hilarious and a great idea!

"The best part of telework is that it improves the quality of life for all," Wolf said in his written statement Tuesday. "Nearly 20 million Americans telework today, and according to experts, at least 40% of American jobs are compatible with telework. Telework reduces traffic congestion and air pollution. It reduces gas consumption and our dependency on foreign oil."

Wolf said telework provides parents with flexibility to meet personal and professional demands, increases opportunities for people with disabilities, and helps fill the nation’s labor market shortage. He also said that companies reap benefits, including cost savings, lower absentee rates, increased retention, higher productivity, and improved morale.
