Oregon State Grow Your Career Webinar Series:
How to Make Telecommuting Work for You

It's estimated that within the next ten years, about 50% of the workplace will likely telecommute.

That means there's a good chance you will be telecommuting at some point in your career.

And for good reason.

Some of the benefits of telecommuting include:

  • Improved productivity (by as much as 15% to 45%!)
  • Increased job satisfaction and company loyalty
  • Fewer distractions and potentially less stress providing critical feedback
  • Environmentally friendly 

In this webinar, Lydia Mills, class of 91, will provide you with valuable information, resources, and options for structuring your work for telecommuters. Join us for a presentation by Lydia Mills, an OSU alumna, on best practices and advice for successful telecommuting.

  1. How to ask for a telecommuting option.
  2. The different options for structuring work for telecommuters.
