Telecommuting Motherload

Let’s say you’ve convinced (or are trying to convince) your employer to let you work from home. Or you’re an enlightened business owner who sees telecommuting as a way to attract and retain good workers. Where do you go for information about how to implement a telework program?

Well, since the U.S. government is the largest work-from-home employer, you might start with them. After all, your tax dollars helped them figure it out to begin with. Talk about a research budget!

Daddy, where does money come from? is the official government site and well worth a visit but for the motherload of pilferable material on the subject, go to the U.S. General Services Administration telework resource page. Here are just some of their well funded goodies–free for the taking:
