“Dear friends, kindly find my blog this week at Telecentre.org http://bit.ly/1qPWsSQ . Hope to get your opinion!
A new survey around telecommuting indicates that 81% of professionals with disabilities would like to teleworking, at least part time.
Today’s ICT innovation is changing the world, world of Assistive Technology (AT) and high-speed Internet access mean new choices and good paying options for people who want the flexibility and convenience of careers that don’t require commuting to an office, or working for someone else.
It is a possible form of employment for persons with disabilities provided care is taken over selection of workers, identification of work that is suited to the telework format and management of telework units by employers.
