Telework

Telework is the ability to work from home or a satellite office one or more days per week. Millions of people are working from home simply by picking up the phone or turning on their computers — saving themselves and their businesses millions of dollars. Telework centers provide a professional work environment equipped with work stations, office equipment and support.
