The traditional workforce—using the model of the 9-to-5 employee—is a thing of the past. Companies, and their employees, are utilizing flex-time and work-from-home arrangements. Modern telework solutions counter problems of escalating real estate costs, traffic and commuting and employee turnover, and promote carbon footprint reduction and higher employee productivity and satisfaction. Telework has taken center stage as a means to generating productive business. Making Telework Work is a call to action, helping organizations gain competitive advantage in a technology-rich world. Leaders of teleworkers must grasp the big picture while still accounting for the details. To do so means developing capabilities that mark extraordinary leadership, not just run of the mill management.

Ralph Jordan, President/CEO of Trident Health Resources, Inc.
With higher gas prices, deteriorating infrastructures and the demands for more flexible schedules from younger workers, telework . . . has become an imperative. The authors lay out, in an easy-to-read format, how to move from idea to implementation on a model that I predict will be the norm within the next generation.

Our world has changed . . . . The way we do work has changed and the way we need to think about work has changed . . . . This is truly the book on leadership strategies to make work environments more effective and efficient.
