by Korrea Johnston
Maintaining business continuity is important for all types of employers, especially during large or unexpected events in the city. The District of Columbia expects over two million visitors on Friday, January 20 for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. For employers, this a great opportunity to emphasize the use of telework and flexible or compressed work schedules to ensure steady employee productivity.
