Telework Advocacy announces 4th annual Telework Summit in Indianapolis

August 21, 2012  


INDIANAPOLIS - Telework Advocacy, a division of Officescape Inc., will host the fourth annual Telework Summit in Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center, 100 S. Capitol Ave., Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Officescape is a tenant of the Purdue Research Park.

Telework, also known as telecommuting, is a work arrangement in which employees use mobile telecommunications technology to work from home or other locations instead of a centralized environment. The summit takes attendees beyond the traditional telework benefits to focus on helping fellow advocates build the business case and the blueprint for a successful telework program.

This year's keynote speakers include Jody Thompson of Minneapolis-based CultureRx LLC and Robin Bews of Calgary, Alberta-based WORKshift.

Thompson and her business partner Cali Ressler are the founders of CultureRx and co-creators of the Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE). Bews is the creator, curator and chief strategist of WORKshift, an initiative of Calgary Economic Development.
