During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies quickly transitioned to telework. As a result, much has been learned about conducting business in a teleworking environment. Once considered a workplace accommodation or employee benefit, telework has now become a common workplace practice.

This webinar will focus on how organizations and employees have adapted to telework and how it will remain an integral part of the workplace of the future. Guest speakers will discuss the many benefits of telework, including cost savings, increased productivity of employees, and expanded access to a qualified talent pool of people with disabilities. Participants will also learn about providing accommodations remotely and ensuring accessibility of recruiting, onboarding, communication, and training platforms.

Hosted by the ODEP-funded Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN).
