 In addition to the resources provided on the Telework!VA website, our telework experts can help your company decide if telework is right for your employees and management, develop a telework program that benefits your business and employees, and help your company use up to $50,000 in tax credits available to businesses in Virginia.  Our experts are available to answer questions from management, supervisors and employees.

 Many of today’s most successful businesses have discovered a powerful way to improve their bottom lines – telework.  When your employees work from home one or more days each week, your business can experience a wide variety of benefits.  You’ll gain increased employee retention through happier and less stressed employees.  You can use your office space in new, more productive ways.  And in times of heavy traffic, bad weather or any other crisis, your employee can easily continue working, so your business continues to operate.

We are not saying that your employees can do their jobs from home every day.   Most or all of your employees cannot do that.  What we look at is to see if some of your employees can do a full day’s work from home just one day a week.  That one day can make a big difference to your employees and your company. 

Not sure if telework is right for your company?  Do you have questions?  Or are you ready to get started?

Simply contact us  and a Northern Virginia Telework!VA consultant will talk or meet with you to answer questions, advise and support your organization in developing a customized telework strategy – absolutely free.

Here’s what we can do for you:

  • Assess if telework can work for your company and/or evaluate your current telework program
  • Answer questions from management, supervisors and employees
  • Explain the benefits of telework and the pros and cons to your company
  • Draft telework policies and agreements (including integration into COOP plans)
  • Define which positions are eligible for telework and if part of their job can be done from home one day a week or more
  • Create a technology plan
  • Assist with developing budgets
  • Help find potential cost savings on office and parking space
  • Train employees to maximize productivity and connectivity with the office while teleworking
  • Train management to supervise employees who work from home
  • Help your company take advantage of Virginia's Telework Tax Credit worth up to $50,000 for Virginia businesses
