Telework Exchange Announces 2nd Annual Telework Week

The Telework Exchange, an Alexandria-based public-private partnership focused on demonstrating the tangible value of telework and serving the emerging educational and communication requirements of the Federal teleworker community has announced that its second annual Telework Week will be held March 5–9, 2012. The event encourages government agencies, businesses and individuals to pledge to telework during this time period.

The Telework Exchange estimates that nearly 40,000 individuals and organizations pledged to take part in last year’s event, collectively saving $2,730,229 on commuting costs, gaining back 148,692 hours into their day, and removing 1,818 tons of pollutants from the air, while refraining from driving 3,764,001 miles.
