“Telework!VA helped us craft a policy and agreement that provided a way for folks to transition back into in-office work but retain some of the benefits we realized during the forced telework situation by allowing an occasional telework arrangement.”
“Telework!VA has enabled us to allow a number of our staff members to work from home-based or virtual offices an average of two days per week. As a result, we’ve found that our employees’ relationships with internal and external customers have improved. In addition, the decreased commuting time and lower fuel expenses that the employees experience engender loyalty to MABC.”
“Teleworking is immensely popular at MHz. We were able to retain a valued employee who moved from Falls Church to Fredericksburg a few months ago, because we’re allowing her to telecommute two to three days a week. It’s helpful for both attracting and retaining employees in the congested metro area that we all live in.”
“[After] launching a [telework] program, the National Head Start Association has seen productivity increase markedly for teleworking individuals. Teleworkers enjoy reduced commute times and costs, being closer to family ... and the general lessening of stress in all aspects of their lives.”
“The CSPDC used the services of Telework!VA last fall during our annual staff retreat and manager training. Consultant Robin Mack did a wonderful job customizing the program to our specific needs and shared some practical advice on how to succeed in our new virtual work environment.”
CALIBRE Systems’ staff was growing when company management was approached by a small group of employees interested in teleworking.

Allowing some employees to work off-site was a promising alternative to an expensive move to a larger space.
