Telecommuting Works!
Place: Holiday Inn, 700 Main Street, Stamford
Time: 8:30 AM –11:30 AM (registration at 8:00)

More than 158,000 Connecticut workers are now telecommuting from a remote location at least one day a month. This intense growth is being fueled by proof that telecommuting increases productivity, saves money, lowers turnover, expands recruiting options, reduces traffic congestion, supports the "green" movement and more.

This seminar features speakers who will drill down beneath the surface of telecommuting to deliver the employers' point of view relating to bottom-line benefits, human resources issues and technology considerations. Telecommute Connecticut speakers include:
– Jean Stimolo, Program Manager
– Laura Collins, Human Resources Consultant
– Don Judson, Data IT Consultant
– Carolyn Cary, Voice IT Consultant

Headlining the seminar is a panel of Connecticut "blue ribbon" employers who have implemented successful telecommuting programs and will describe their experiences, share lessons learned and help answer your questions and concerns. Panelists include:
– Ed Houghton, Director, Workforce Effectiveness and Transition Services, Pitney Bowes
– Ron Robert, Manager of Organizational Talent, United Illuminating
– Karen Laurel, Senior Director, Human Resources, Purdue Pharma
– Eileen Lavin, Telework Project Management Office and Susan Beers, Preceding Telework PMO, Aetna Service Operations
– Karen Lawler, Director of Health Information, Hospital of Saint Raphael
