Course Title: Telework 101 for Employees


Course Description: Telework can give you more control over your schedule, more time for family and community, and freedom from the interruptions of a noisy office. But will it work for you? This course gives you a brief, practical introduction to telework. It offers tools for deciding whether telework is a good fit for you and for the specific job you hold. It teaches you strategies for teleworking efficiently, staying "plugged in" to the office, and managing your interactions with co-workers and customers.
