Teaching Workshops on the Management of Telecommuting Programs
The demand for telework options is growing due to pressures from employees seeking flexibility, organizations seeking to reduce office rental space costs, environmental concerns about congested city traffic/pollution, and by the nature of jobs that include 'accidental home workers' such as academics. As organizations consider offering the option of telework to their employees, planning and awareness of issues associated with such efforts are critical components of success. Setting realistic expectations for employees, managers and office bound co-workers will improve the acceptance of telework options. This conference workshop will provide the participants with an outline for topics to cover in conducting workshops for organizations contemplating offering telework. The topics could also form the basis of a teaching unit for MIS or management courses. References are provided for further reading.
Keywords: telework, telecommuting, telematics, workshop development, shifting paradigms, telework program planning and management
