The Great Debate: Is Telecommuting Right for Your Editorial Operation?

Please join the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) and your colleagues in the trade and association press for a Wed., Oct. 24, panel discussion on the pros and cons of telecommuting.

Forget PC vs. Mac. One of the greatest debates among B2B execs and editors is whether to allow editors to telecommute, whether they live an hour away or across the country. Detractors say it interferes with day-to-day business operations; supporters believe it's a way to retain talented employees and save on overhead. So who's right?

Decide for yourself at the latest lunch workshop from the American Society of Business Publication Editors, D.C. chapter: Is Telecommuting Right for Your Editorial Operation? Our panel of industry veterans will weigh in on the whys and why-nots of working outside the office, with contrasting viewpoints from a staunch opponent and an equally staunch proponent.

Plus: If you're ready to consider telecommuting for you or your employees, this session will provide tips and tools for implementing a work-at-home policy, managing remote staff, and being an effective telecommuter.
