Improve Your Bottom Line and Make Our Region a Better Place with Telework!

More and more businesses are realizing bottom-line benefits from structured telework programs. Telework is an arrangement which allows working from a remote location, while maintaining communication with managers, colleagues, and customers. The Baltimore Metropolitan Council  and the Maryland Department of Transportation have contracted with Telework Program Solutions, telework consultants, to work with a select number of businesses in the Baltimore region. 

The goal is to reduce both traffic congestion and air pollution by helping employers realize the benefits of a formal telework program—at no cost! Benefits from telework can include:

  • Improved employee satisfaction resulting in improved employee retention,
  • Improved employee attraction and retention resulting in reduced recruiting and training costs and a competitive advantage in finding outstanding employees,
  • Reduced employee effort and time spent in commutes resulting in improved productivity,
  • Decreased pressure and increased flexibility on office space needs resulting in reduced office space costs,
  • Other benefits are possible such as diminished parking needs and reduced overhead and others.


We want to help qualified area employers establish successful telework programs. That's why we've created TeleworkBaltimore.com. Take a few minutes and register with us. It's free! In return, you'll be able to download valuable materials helpful for starting a telework program.
