Georgia Telework Week is Aug. 20-24
Managing Georgia’s transportation issues has been a hot topic in 2012, but there’s one solution that everyone agrees on: telework. Approved by business leaders, politicians and transportation experts, telework is an efficient way to reduce traffic and boost economic productivity. That’s why The Clean Air Campaign and Gov. Nathan Deal are calling on employers and commuters to support the third annual Georgia Telework Week, Aug. 20-24.
During this week, The Clean Air Campaign is asking commuters and employers to log onto CleanAirCampaign.org/Telework, learn about the numerous benefits of this business strategy, and show their support. The organization is also encouraging employers to take advantage of its free consulting services and resources.
A special Telework Summit on Aug. 22 will provide insight and guidance for employers looking to implement a telework program or build on the success of their current efforts. The event features panelists from ADP, Ista, Assurant, the Centers for Disease Control and Georgia Department of Administrative Services, and is tailored to both private and public sector employers. It will take place at the Loudermilk Center, 40 Courtland St., in Atlanta.
