Virginia Telework Week
March 7 – 11
Telework Week is a great time for businesses and their employees reaffirm their commitment to telework. It is also a good time to test how telework can be used in a company’s Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) – snow days can be productive days. It is also a good time for businesses currently without a telework program to test a pilot program with a group of employees. Businesses and individuals throughout Virginia are encouraged to participate in Virginia Telework Week.
DRPT would like to thank all of the Telework Champions and the businesses and individuals that pledged for your participation in Virginia Telework Week. Your telework efforts have helped Virginia to improve traffic congestion and air quality.Let telework work for you!
