The Telework Impact & Opportunities: Best Practices and Current Issues Conference
The Telework Impact & Opportunities: Best Practices and Current Issues Conference will be held on June 3 & 4, 2004 at the Stoweflake Resort & Spa in Stowe, Vermont.
This national conference will focus on the need for employers to create work at home employment opportunities geared to meet the changing needs of the workforce. As employees demonstrate a need for greater balance between their professional and personal lives, working at home is proving to be one of the more important opportunities that an employer can offer as part of a successful work/life program. At the same time, as the number of self employed persons continues to rise, niche markets are being created for new assistive technology applications and specialized training to prepare individuals for the work at home experience.
Businesses considering hiring or creating a remote workforce, HR managers who assist in the management of workforces at home, economic development professionals, employers with a disabled workforce, community action agencies and employers who currently have a teleworkforce in place are encouraged to attend.
Keynote speakers include Robert Brostrom from the Office of Disability Employment Policy in the US Department of Labor, Joanne Pratt from Pratt & Associates on Implementing a Cost/Benefit Analysis for a Corporate Telework Program and Gil Gordon of Gil Gordon & Associates on The Future of Telework in America. In additional, several workshops, exhibit and networking opportunities are included in the program. The full conference schedule is available at www.vermontworkathome.com.
Registration for the two-day event is $175.00 per person for early registration, and included admission into all of the sessions, lunch each day, and a banquet on Thursday evening. For more information on attending or exhibiting, call 802-655-7769.
