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.

Dinnocenzo is a dynamic speaker, successful author, and innovative educator with expertise in virtual workplace issues including virtual leadership, virtual teams, telework, and work-life balance.
