If you're looking for a quick way to get out in front of what you need to know about telework, there's a 212 page handbook that can help.

Sandra Gurvis is one of the authors of the "Handbook for Managing Telework" subtitled "A Five-Step Management Process for Managing Teleworkers".

That process, says Gurvis, can be boiled down to:

  1. Decide if your organization needs telework
  2. Create a teleworking team
  3. Create a game plan
  4. Implementation and
  5. Maintenance

Gurvis says teleworking is "definitely the way of the future, in terms of rush-hour traffic, in terms of the environment, in terms of work-life balance."
