Teleworking is a complex subject touching on myriad issues, including performance management, trust, equipment acquisition, and culture change, but also greenhouse gas reduction, cost-savings, and continuity of service.

This session will explore teleworking best practices and policies, examine its role in government and industry, and address the issues blocking wide-scale implementation.
