Did you know RideSmart Solutions helps with establishing Telework programs?
Teleworking means using information technology and telecommunications to replace work-related travel. Simply put, it means working at home or closer to home. With teleworking, employees work at home, a local telework center, or an employer’s satellite office one or more days per week. Communication is accomplished by phone, fax, email, and teleconferencing.  Regionally, more than 500,000 workers are going to work simply by picking up the phone or turning on their computers. 

Like alternative transportation, these workplace solutions reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, increasing the area’s economic vitality, and bolster overall quality of life.   

Telework is a win-win-win opportunity for agencies, organizations, employees, and the environment. Telework supports:

  • Business continuity
  • Improved productivity
  • Real estate savings
  • Personnel recruitment and retention
  • Work/life balance and commuter cost savings
  • Reduction of traffic, greenhouse gas emissions, and wear and tear on public transportation

How RideSmart Solutions helps you implement Telework:

  • Identify job types best suited to these alternatives
  • Advise on issues related to schedule changes
  • Survey employees and managers for planning input
  • Recommend program policies and procedures
  • Supply sample documents
