Remote Work Workshops

Are you interested in remote flexible work and expanding your career opportunities? We can help! We are holding in-person workshops to walk you through the steps to get remote work.

What is remote work? defines “remote work (also known as work from home [WFH] or telecommuting) as a type of flexible working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices. For employees who can complete work offsite, this arrangement can help ensure work-life balance, access to career opportunities or reduced commutation costs. Benefits for the company include increased employee satisfaction and retention, increased productivity and cost savings on physical resources. Remote work arrangements can be temporary or permanent, part-time or full-time, occasional or frequent. Remote work requires policies governing equipment use, network security and performance expectations.”

Want to learn more? This workshop is for anyone who has thought about remote work or has already done it. It is an opportunity to talk through the options and help you decide on the right approach for you. All experience levels are welcome!

Workshop Information: Seats are limited at each workshop. Registration required.
