Go ahead, make home your workplace


In a campaign to encourage telecommuting, TeleworkExchange.com has declared the week of Feb. 14 Telework Week. More than 37,000 workers have pledged to work from home during the week. Doing so will save $2.6 million and 3.4 million pounds of pollutants. Working from home also has been linked to workforce productivity, operational efficiencies, sustainability, worker recruitment and retention, work life balance and reduced traffic congestion and lower greenhouse gas emissions, according to the group’s website.
