On August 3, 2009, thousands joined the movement and participated in Telework Day.

On June 10, 2009, Virginia Governor Timothy Kaine issued an Executive Order to "green" Virginia – calling for reductions in energy consumption and efficiency in state government operations as well as a statewide Telework Day to save the energy of commuting.

The Commonwealth of Virginia, Telework!VA, and Telework Exchange encouraged organizations and individuals to telework from home or a remote location on Monday, August 3, 2009

Telework Day

Telework is a win-win-win opportunity for organizations, employees, and the environment.

Telework supports:

  • Reduction of traffic, greenhouse gas emissions, and wear and tear on public transportation
  • COOP: Business as usual
  • Personnel recruitment and retention
  • Real estate savings
  • Work/life balance and commuter-cost savings
