Testimonials and Case Studies

The following testimonials and case studies illustrate how with the help of Telework!VA, different companies designed telework programs that boosted their employee retention, productivity and profitability.


Calibre Systems

Calibre Systems was experiencing some growth when it was approached by a small group of employees interested in teleworking. Given the technology base of Calibre Systems’ business, it was only natural to put a program in place. The option of allowing some employees to work offsite was a promising alternative to an expensive move.


"A VOIP telephone system combined with a document imaging system has allowed us to create a virtual office in the telework environment. Operating costs have been reduced significantly. Productivity has remained high, if not increased. Employee satisfaction with the program is high."

James W. Rodgers, CPCU, ARM, CRM
President & Chief Operating Officer

Endependence Center

“Our teleworkers report that they are working more efficiently and effectively, and as a disability organization, many of our employees have benefited from the reduction in their commute in terms of stamina and avoiding the physical strain required to travel to and from work every day.”

Stephen L. Johnson
Executive Director
Endependence Center, Inc.

JDB Associates

Considerable growth led JDB to consider a telework program. The goal of the program was to avoid relocation, alleviate scarce and expensive parking and attract and retain employees.


GeoConcepts realized that the everyday commute in Northern Virginia was stressful for employees. GeoConcepts designed a telework solution with the goal of recruiting and retaining skilled employees.


“Telework!VA has enabled us to allow a number of our staff members to work from home-based or virtual offices an average of two days per week.  As a result, we’ve found that our employees’ relationships with internal and external customers have improved. In addition, the decreased commuting time and lower fuel expenses that the employees experience engender loyalty to MABC.”

Rick Flora
Chief Executive Officer
Mid-Atlantic Business
Communications, Inc.


MHZ Networks

"Teleworking is immensely popular at MHz. We were able to retain a valued employee who moved from Falls Church to Fredericksburg a few months ago, because we’re allowing her to telecommute two to three days a week. It’s helpful for both attracting and retaining employees in the congested metro area that we all live in."

Heideh Kabir
Director of Human Resources
MHz Falls Church

National Head Start Association

“Launching a Telework!VA program in 2001, the National Head Start Association has seen productivity increase markedly for teleworking individuals. Teleworkers enjoyed reduced commute times and costs, being closer to family... and the general lessening of stress in all aspects of their lives.”

National School Boards Association

“Thirty-five employees participated in the National School Board Association's Telework!VA program 2004-2006. Dispelling one of teleworking's biggest myths, supervisors said communication actually improved. Also, teleworkers reported an average increase in productivity of 17 percent.”

National Wildlife Federation

“Because the National Wildlife Federation is a conservation and environmental organization, it made sense for this steward of Mother Earth to implement a formal telework program for its employees. During the two-year project period, the program grew by more than 900 percent and vehicle trips were reduced by 2,947.”

Executive Director at the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission
