Everybody's shedworking for Obama's inauguration

The Telework Exchange - which aims to show the tangible value of working from home in the US - is using today's inauguration to encourage people not to risk the commute to work in the Washington DC area and discover the joys of shedworking and homeworking. They point out that up to 4 million people are expected in the Washington, D.C. region for the inaugural events and so local commuters can expect gridlocked roadways and transit systems. So as the area prepares for the surge in traffic, organisations must find ways to maintain business operations. Here's what Cindy Auten, general manager, Telework Exchange, says:
"Encouraging telework not only reduces strain on our transportation infrastructure, but it also supports work/life balance – an issue that is important to President-elect Obama. From improved COOP to employee retention, productivity, and green initiatives, telework is a proven success. It’s time to show that organizations are supporting work/life balance, a clean environment, and are committed to reducing our dependency on oil.”
