Telecommuting

Description:

This is the green commute mode with many names!  It can be called teleworking, telecommuting, or, simply, working from home.  It means an employee works from a remote location (often their own home) rather than the office.  It can be done full or part-time. This is one of the greenest modes of commuting because it means that the commuter is not using any modes that generate carbon emissions all or most days that they work. 
 
If you already telework, Commuter Services can help you to design your workspace to be ergonomically sound, comfortable, and personalized for you.  We can also help you make sure you have all the technology and cybersecurity you need to do your job safely and effectively. 
 
If your organization has not yet put teleworking into place, we can assist in creating a policy, making it happen, training your managers and employees, and assuring that the process goes a smoothly and productively as possible.
