Invitation to sign up for Telework Week 2013
Telework Week 2013 takes place March 4-8. This is the third-annual global effort to encourage government agencies, organizations and individuals to pledge to telework any time from March 4-8. Go here to sign up and to determine your agency’s impact and savings.
For the 2013 Telework Week, people who pledge are expected to save an average of $66 per day, which equates to an annual savings of $3,300 per person. The estimates are based on the 77,000 people, government agencies and companies that have already pledged to be a part of Telework Week 2013 (and that number may grow as Telework Week gets closer).
Last year, more than 71,000 pledged to take part in Telework Week 2012. Participants saved $5,651,890 on commuting costs; they gained back 251,774 hours into their day and removed 3,453 tons of pollutants from the air, while refraining from driving 6,413,006 miles.
