TAMPA, Fla. — May 28, 2020 — Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC), in partnership with e-work.com, today launched an online Telework Certificate program. The coursework includes five self-paced courses providing the skills, knowledge, tools, resources, and best practices for working in a remote environment for both teleworking employees and their managers.

One outcome of the pandemic has been a large increase in the number of Americans working from home. “We expect to see a long-term shift towards telework,” said Julie Bond, Program Director for Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Our new certificate program provides the needed training for managers and employees to successfully work in a remote environment.” About 64% of BWC member employers currently offer a telework program.

A leader in the industry, e.work.com has delivered coursework to over 1 million workers with an average 95% satisfaction rate. “We are very excited to partner with Best Workplaces for Commuters to deliver best-in-class e-Learning courses for remote work and telework,” said Neil Norris, CEO of e-work.com. “We cannot think of any better partner than Best Workplaces for Commuters to make these courses available to every size and type of organization, especially in today’s challenging times.”
