In March, FlexJobs and Remote.co announced the first ever TRaD* Works Forum (*Telecommuting, Remote, and Distributed) June 8 -10, 2016, at the Fairmont Washington, DC, Georgetown Hotel. Since then, we’ve been busy filling in the details of this one-of-a-kind event, and we want to make sure you know all about it!

The goal of TRaD Works is to provide a space where remote work leaders can share their knowledge, technologies, and best practices on this evolving trend. The caliber of leadership represented at this event is top-notch, and you can be there to discuss and learn about the benefits, challenges, and opportunities that “TRaD” working offers.

This is a collaborative event where leaders in remote work will help each other figure out how to track, support, and optimize remote work programs at their respective organizations.
