Why Telework Kitsap?
Telework is not a new concept: many people already work from a remote location - often a home office or a "third place" such as a coffee shop or library. Many large, private-sector organizations have, over the past two decades, established and expanded formal telework programs. Much informal telework also exists.
Small & public sector organizations (major employers in Kitsap County) have been slower to adopt telework: they face different challenges from businesses with 100+ employees.
The resources on this website and on TeleworkToolkit.Com
were developed with smaller & public sector organizations in mind. The positive effects of supporting local Kitsap employers and their work force are felt by our entire community. A growing base of information to start, expand or trouble-shoot telework initiatives and programs is available here, for free.
