Are employers rethinking telework? In this Launch Talk conversation I speak with Debra Dinnocenzo, president of VirtualWorks! about Yahoo's recent decision to end telecommuting: Is it good for organizations?

Hear a timely discussion about these questions, as well as strategies for proposing a telework arrangement and ways to mana
The new Yahoo CEO has now put a ban on telecommuting and has required that all Yahoo employees starting June of 2013, be back on site to work out of the megaplex home office. We have struggled for many years to support the cause and value of flexible hours and telecommuting staff, and this very well may be setting back the cause of many years of work. It’s definitely a very Retro Move! So has Marissa Mayer essentially started a trend to put to end the practice of telecommuting? And what
A woman in Boston had her gym membership revoked for talking on her phone on the eliptical (the rules say no cell phone use in workout area). We'll chat whether the gym is doing the right thing or being too Draconian with its policy. Also, so many are jumping on the bash telecommuting band wagon. Even Nanny Bloomberg in NYC is badmouthing it, calling it DUMB! Do YOU telecommute? Do you like it? Do you prefer your employees work in the office than at home? Or vice versa?
The recent hurricane Sandy forced many of the country's largest businesses to close their doors this week. For the winning companies which embrace telecommuting and all of the benefits it brings, it was no day off.

For the smart companies who regularly employ staff with flexible work schedules, this week was no problem. Join Flex Hour Jobs as we di

Brain Carr of the Clean Air Campaign discusses the upcoming telecommuting week and other options to reduce commuter pollution.
Executives often view telecommuting as a drain on productivity. In light of recent reseach, they may be justified. On the other hand, there are benefits to telecommuting that C-suiters should consider before setting policies against it.
We all feel a need to take more control of our lives and try to fit more in terms of balancing our obligations to work and family. It's work-life balance and factoring in family needs that take precedence so we won't feel resentful for either of them.
Women with young kids are the fastest growing segment of the American workforce and they are in desperate need of jobs with wome sort of flexibility.
Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss Reasons for Workplace Flexibility.

#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT). Remember, the #TChat Twitter chat will follow from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about workplace innovation and how we can fuse disruption and adoption. This week we're going to talk about the growing number of professionals who telecommute and work from home — and who get the work done - another form of evolving workplace innovation. Progressive companies today emphasize work-life fit (not balance, thank you) that includes some form of workplace flexibility as a “business strategy,” not an employee benefit. Workplace flexibility has been shown to reduce absenteeism, turnover, real estate costs, utilities and other expenses, while in the same breath improving attracting and retaining talent, employee engagement, productivity and much more. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: Lisa Horn, Co-Leader of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative and a SHRM Senior Government Relations Advisor, and Susan Lovegren, SVP of HR at Plantronics, a global leader in audio communications for businesses and consumers that recently launched their Smarter Working initiative. This will be another important show for us all, so talk about changing the corporate mindset of clocking time in a cubicle.
