National Work and Family Month (NWFM) is celebrated by Virtual Vocations each October. The company launches the event with a week-long celebration at the beginning of the month. For 2018, Virtual Vocations will celebrate NWFM from Monday, October 1 through Saturday, October 6, 2018.

In 2003, NWFM was established by a congressional resolution. This designation has continued to be recognized by federal agencies, educational bodies, and private businesses like Virtual Vocations. For their part, Virtual Vocations marks the annual designation with tributes to the progression and mainstreaming of telecommuting as a work model and the benefits it brings to families searching for greater flexibility in their professional and personal lives.

“It is important for a company like ours to celebrate National Work & Family Month. Our business is founded on making available to jobseekers—many of whom are working parents or caregivers—flexible, telecommute job leads to match their skills and experience," said Laura Spawn, CEO and Co-Founder of Virtual Vocations.

Greater scheduling and life flexibility is the primary motivator for Virtual Vocations members to search for remote jobs. In 2016, a Virtual Vocations poll of their members during their inaugural NWFM event found that 89% of members named finding a better balance between their work and family lives to be the main reason they want to telecommute.

During the first week of October, on their company’s main website as well as on their social media pages, Virtual Vocations users can expect to find new features and offers including the following:

  • 20% off sale on new Virtual Vocations subscriptions
