Saving the Environment and Your Budget:
Green Insights from the New Telework Enhancement Act

Thursday, February 10, 2011
11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET
Duration: 1 hour

It’s official: the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 was signed into law by President Obama one short month ago. Its effects are already being felt at the federal, state, and local levels. While federal agencies are the primary focus of the legislation, the new law will likely set the template for similar action at the state and local level. Agencies have only six months to develop a formal telework policy, and teleworkers must be given equal treatment in performance appraisals, work environments, and other areas. A watershed move to online workspaces is expected as a result.

It’s easy to see the cost-cutting power of telework, web conferencing, and online collaboration. The high costs of travel, downtown office buildings, and are simply unsustainable in these difficult economic times. We know that online collaboration can cut all of those costs. The green benefits – in terms of lower carbon emissions and other benefits – are not as familiar but just as important.

Join GOVERNING on Thursday, February 10 at 2 p.m. ET for a live, interactive webinar to learn how to:

  • Prepare for the impact that the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 will have on all levels of government
  • Cut hard-dollar costs from your travel, real estate, and utilities budgets
  • Transition from face-to-face meetings to the world of online collaboration
  • Address your team’s work style and change management concerns
  • Cut your environmental footprint and demonstrate the green benefits to your constituents
