Change We Can Believe In

The Telework Exchange is encouraging DC area employers to validate their continuity of operations plans and keep their employees from completely going bananas in traffic by allowing them to telecommute during the inauguration festivities. Anyone who has ever driven in Washington, DC knows how hellish the traffic is there -- and I mean 24 hours a day, seven days a week you will be sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic at some point during a jaunt around that stinking Beltway.

What a great way to show your employees you care about them and you want them to retain some semblance of sanity. And really, what is the point of making people sit in cars for two and a half or three hours just to sit at their desks and use computers.

So you've got a few days to get this together, DC area employers: figure out who can telecommute, figure out how they'll do it, get their work organized, and then let them rock their slippers on and around January 20th.

They will be so grateful.
