At the Nonprofit HR Conference, Dayna will present on telework programs. An effective telework program can make a difference in your organization. But what are the risks and opportunities in expanding a work-from-home culture? How do you rein-in inconsistent practices or the sense of entitlement that can arise from early implementation? What about telework’s recent bad press (think Yahoo!)? How do you assure an implementation strategy that creates energy, goodwill, and results, and not anarchy? Join us as we discuss the success story from National Industries for the Blind (NIB). With a devoted internal project team, NIB followed smart, careful steps to build a highly successful program. In this workshop you’ll get the step-by-step process that any organization can follow for a successful program. You’ll also hear what NIB’s President said at the start of their telework initiative and what he said a year later.
