The marketing department at ReadyTalk is participating in Telework week to promote ReadyTalk’s entrée into the Federal Government. Today is my scheduled day to telework. Coincidentally, I also got a last minute opportunity to stay up in our condo at Winter Park, CO and spend some time with my family. Turns out I can do both.
For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of teleworking, it is the act of working from home or from an alternative work place – really from anywhere. Today’s technology enables this possibility. With smart phones, corporate VPNs, web mail, instant messaging – and, ahem, audio and web conferencing - workers can be more productive, efficient, green - and get a little more time in with the family.
This morning I’ll be working from the condo. This afternoon I’ll step outside into the beautiful Colorado sunshine and enjoy my first ski day in seven years with my twin 6-year-old boys (who said they will go easy on me). Work/life balance at its very best.
ReadyTalk will be doing more in the next few months to support our efforts in the government market. Watch our webinar series for presentations on how to work with the government and more on telework practices. We’ll be attending Telework Town Hall and the GSA Expo in DC in April and May.
