Is Now the Time for Telework & Flextime at Your Organization? 
With the improvement in the economy, the needs of the future generation of our workforce, and the low unemployment in the Twin Cities, skilled talent is getting harder to find and so is the office space to put them for many organizations. We all know that Telework and Workplace Flexibility have been around for many years, but have you reviewed your organization’s programs lately?
To truly leverage the power of flexibility & telework, a strategic approach to building a flexible work culture may be needed. In this session, participants will learn how they can implemented successful workplace flexibility initiatives. Examples, best practices, and new resources that are available from eWorkPlace. This state-sponsored program was first introduced in 2009, and in just two years it helped many Twin Cities’ metro-area employers and thousands of employees learn about, introduce, and perfect Workplace Flexibility & Telework. 

When Telecommuting becomes Teledepressing
It's no surprise that 80% to 90% of workers say they would like to telework at least part time. But the home office isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Distractions abound, including laundry, pets and children. But the real buzzkill is isolation from fellow workers, management and learning opportunities. Telecommuters are increasingly embracing coworking spaces as a healthy and stimulating alternative to the home.
