Local Operator Driving Global Telework Opportunities

Establishing a model for other operators is what Park Region Mutual Telephone Company is doing with the Minnesota Telecom Association with its telework program. Interviewed at last year’s 2011 MTA, Park Region’s General Manager, Dave Bickett, provides an update on their telework program, how they have worked with other local businesses and how they have had to educate the various constituents, from Human Resources staff to potential employees, about the benefits and nuances of telework.

Their work in this area is positioning the people in its community to compete for jobs on a global basis without these new employees having to leave home.
