Supporting National Work & Family Month seemed like a natural thing to do, since my goal back in 2007 when Virtual Vocations was launched, was to allow me to stay at home with my children. -Laura Spawn, CEO

Established through a 2003 congressional resolution sponsored by Republican Senator Orrin G. Hatch and recognized annually each October, National Work and Family Month was created to make work-life balance a national priority. Over the last 13 years National Work and Family Month has been recognized by private businesses, federal agencies, colleges and universities.

Considering the idea for Virtual Vocations—founded in 2007 and evolved to become the leading telecommute-only jobs board online—was formed out of the frustrations of one working mother’s exhaustive search for legitimate telecommuting jobs to better suit her family’s needs as well as her career goals, it’s fitting that Virtual Vocations will participate in National Work and Family Month.

“Supporting National Work & Family Month seemed like a natural thing for Virtual Vocations to do, since my goal back in 2007 when Virtual Vocations was launched was to allow me to stay at home with my children,” said Laura Spawn, CEO and co-founder of Virtual Vocations. “While maintaining balance between work and family can be a struggle at times, the flexibility telecommuting offers has definitely made it easier. Our goal is to help others who want that same flexibility in their own life and career.”

The need for working families to efficiently search a broad variety of quality telecommuting job leads from thriving virtual industries and remote employers who value home-based and flexible work arrangements is a driving force behind Virtual Vocations’ business model as well as the primary motivator of job seekers who subscribe to Virtual Vocations’ services.

As part of Virtual Vocations’ Year-End Report for 2015, a survey of 1,666 registered Virtual Vocations members revealed that more than half of telecommuters care for a child or family member in their homes on a regular basis. This work-life flexibility also led to 79 percent of respondents experiencing an increased quality of life since telecommuting, and more than 84 percent of telecommuters reporting they benefited from deceased costs commonly associated with work such as lunches purchased from restaurants, business attire, and fuel for commuting.

Throughout the month of October, join Virtual Vocations in their celebration of National Work and Family Month by exploring their database of human-screened telecommute-only job postings in more than 40 categories, visiting the Virtual Vocations blog for weekly content geared toward working families, and interacting with Virtual Vocations’ team on Facebook and Twitter using the official WorldatWork National Work and Family Month hashtag #WorkLifeWins and Virtual Vocations’ own tag #VVWorkAndFamily.
