Your commute time could be less than a minute. Teleworking is a convenient solution that enables employees to work from home or a remote location one or more days per week. It’s a win-win for employers and employees, reducing commute costs, lowering parking demand, and helping the environment. Telework has proven benefits to employees and employers.
TeleworkSD is a pilot project that will provide no cost resources for employers who want to explore and implement telework programs in San Diego County. Offered by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) iCommute program, TeleworkSD will select up to ten employers to receive step-by-step assistance and guidance. The TeleworkSD team has more than 30 years of expertise in working with private, public, and nonprofit organizations. Learn more about the TeleworkSD pilot project or apply today.
