FlexJobs and Remote.co today announced they will host the first ever TRaD* Works Conference (*Telecommuting, Remote, and Distributed) in Washington, D.C. on June 8 -10, 2016.

The TRaD Works Conference will equip businesses with actionable insights into how they can support and optimize remote work programs to maximize the economic, social, health, and environmental benefits of remote work.

Conference speakers so far include leaders from Dell, ADP, Anthem, Automattic, CNN, SAP, the U.S. Department of Labor, and many others. Speakers, panels, and interactive workshops will address various topics related to the entire life cycle of remote work, such as how it can save organizations money, help attract top talent and increase candidate pools, and increase employee productivity, engagement, and satisfaction. For example:

-The ROI for the Economic Benefits of Remote Work
