TUCSON, ARIZONA (PRWEB) October 02, 2017
National Work and Family Month (NWFM), which was established in a 2013 congressional resolution and has been recognized by educational institutions, private businesses, and federal agencies, will be celebrated by Virtual Vocations October 2–7, 2017. Their second annual NWFM celebration will continue to highlight the importance of work-life balance for U.S. professionals and promote telecommuting as a solution for greater career and life flexibility.
As part of their 2016 NWFM celebration, Virtual Vocations surveyed telecommuters and telecommute jobseekers on the ways their professional and personal lives intersect. Virtual Vocations found that 82.8% of survey respondents would accept lower wages in exchange for the option to telecommute at least some of the time and 89% of respondents are motivated to telecommute so as to achieve better balance between their lives at home and at work.
"The decision to celebrate National Work and Family Month for a second year was an easy one," said Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations' CEO and Co-Founder. "Virtual Vocations is not only a family owned and operated business, but also a company driven to expand the possibilities for working families. Telecommuting offers real solutions for professionals who need to work and who want to maximize time with their families."
