Scottsdale, AZ and Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 01, 2013
WorldatWork, a nonprofit human resources association focused on compensation, benefits and work-life, is pleased to celebrate Telework Week 2013 by hosting a Tweet chat Wednesday on March 6 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST using #telework.
Rose Stanley, @WorldatWork_RS, work-life practice leader for WorldatWork, will moderate the chat with guests Cindy Auten, @CindyMWE, general manager, Mobile Work Exchange, the lead sponsor of Telework Week 2013, and the award-winning Mika J. Cross, @USDA work/life and wellness program manager, Office for Human Resources Management, United States Department of Agriculture. USDA's Turbo-Charge Telework program was recently honored with an Innovative Excellence Award from WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP). Cross was also recognized as an AWLP "Rising Star" for her role in implementing this program.
The Tweet chat (#telework) will address employers' concerns about mobile work and highlight four key reasons why organizations should consider implementing Telework. Telework Week is an annual global effort to encourage agencies, organizations, and individuals to pledge to telework anytime from March 4-8, 2013.
"WorldatWork supports efforts to raise awareness of the importance of telework or mobile work as a flexibility tool. Our studies show that a culture of flexibility results in increased productivity and a lower voluntary turnover rate for organizations," said Rose Stanley, WLCP, work-life practice leader for WorldatWork. "Mobile work can be integrated more effectively in the workplace by providing training on how to be a successful employee or manager of employees with flexible work schedules."
