Over the last ten years, there has been a 115% increase in employees of companies working remotely full-time and that Gallup also reported 43% of U.S. workers work remotely at least occasionally. Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of Flexjobs and remote.co created the TRaD*Works Forum (TRaD means telecommuting, remote, and distributed.) because she wanted to find a “better easier way to describe this shift in where and how we work.”

The TRaD Works Forum takes place this week in Washington DC and features speakers from organizations like ADP, Cisco, Dell, Flexjobs, Johns Hopkins University, MIT, and Xerox who will share their thoughts on best practices and challenges involved with working remotely.
