Telework Week is coming up in March and they're asking people to "pledge to telework." What we want to know is, why can't we just pledge to get results? The CultureRx crew talk about shifting the dialogue about work from "where, when, and how it happens" to just simply "getting results." We'll have a special guest, Kathy Kacher from the FlexWork side to debate the point. Flexibility or Results? You decide.
Pamela La Gioia is the president of Telework Recruiting, a premier web site that helps professionals find telecommuting employment. She has been researching and writing about telecommuting since the early 1990s, and currently offers site members almost 2,500 companies that hire telecommuters. Pamela is sharing on The Momprenur Model show January 16 at 10amPT/1pmET and LIVE on your time in archive here on Word of Mom Radio - the show for Mompreneurs - the NEW Business Woman.

Employee engagement and satisfaction is becoming ever more important as budgets tighten and staff may be asked to do more without seeing big pay increases. This means making sure personnel have a healthy work/life balance is crucial to retention, especially in an environment like the DoD, which typically offers attractive benefits. In this podcast, Pamela Budda, Telework Managing Officer for the DoD, talks about some of her strategies, what works and what doesn’t.
Pamela will speak at the HCMD conference, which will take place next year from March 12-15 in Arlington, VA. Please visit the website to learn more about the program.
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? What are the pros and cons for teleworkers themselves? Is it still a good idea to propose telecommuting to your employer to help manage your day job? Hear a timely discussion about these questions, as well as strategies for proposing a telework arrangement and ways to manage the balance between work and personal life when working remotely.
