The number of people teleworking across the US will be much higher than it was before the pandemic. Less than 4% of employees were teleworking in 2017. In the post-pandemic, estimates are that it will grow to over 25%* with people working half-time or more out of the office.
Everyone’s Guide to Teleworking:
Strategies for Success and Building Value at Work
Who is the book for?
Any individual, or organization that is affected by telework, or who may telework in the future or is thinking about teleworking. If you telework or telecommute regularly, you know that out of office can also mean out of mind. Growing in your job, being valued at work, or even advancing your career can challenge anyone who teleworks.
As teleworkers, we are out of sight. Without deliberate effort, we can likewise be out of mind. The advantages of teleworking can become a liability if we do not integrate ourselves into daily workflows
IN THIS BOOK. WE EXPOLRE ALL THE PITFALLS AND MORE…
We discuss preparing our workspaces, technology, and mindset. We consider how companies enable telework and examine our relationships with coworkers and managers, focusing on overcoming barriers presented by technology. We focus on six attributes that build our value in the workplace: Effective communication, organizational perspective, working with others, influence, leadership and networking. In short. this book delivers on the promise of staying out of the office, but not out of mind.
When we are teleworking, every single medium we use—the tools of telework, so to speak—presents us with a set of barriers to success. Because telework involves working at a distance by using technology, we simply cannot have the same communication experience as an in-person interaction.

As teleworkers, we can slink into the virtual workspace without being seen and get straight to work. We can even be far more productive than our commuting colleagues by avoiding the interaction that happens in workplaces but doing so puts us out of sight and out of mind.
