As the workforce becomes more mobile and no longer tethered to an office cubicle, traditional office-bound employees are giving way to teleworkers.

Telework solutions counter problems of escalating real estate costs, increased commuting time, and employee turnover while promoting carbon footprint reduction and higher employee productivity.

However, adopting and making telework effective is difficult. Although many organizational leaders chant the mantra that “work is something you do, not a place you go,” many organizations still find it difficult to embrace this concept.

Making Telework Work simplifies how leaders can integrate technology, manage skilled workers—teleworkers—and drive competitive advantage.

Jason M. Morwick is a fulltime teleworker and writer who writes about teleworking, leading in the virtual workplace, and business process improvement. He has published in journals, magazines, and websites such as Quality Progress, Review of Business, Business Journal, Strategic HR Review, American Business Review, iSixSigma Magazine ,and isixsigma.com.

Jason holds a bachelor of science from the United States Military Academy at West Point and a Masters of Business Administration from Regis University, Denver, Colorado.

Dr. Evan Offstein, a former Military Intelligence Officer, is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. He earned a Master’s degree in administration from Central Michigan University and a doctorate in business from Virginia Tech.

Dr. Offstein has consulted for organizations as the United States Army, U.S. Treasury, the Internal Revenue Service, the Tennessee Valley Authority, Northwestern Mutual Life, to name a few.
