This September, thought leaders and recruiting professionals from across the country will head to Washington D.C. to attend the annual TRaD Works forum, an exciting gathering focused on the future of remote work and its impact on organizations of all sizes.
The TRaD Works conference, sponsored by 1MFWF Founder FlexJobs and its sister site, Remote.co, is a fantastic opportunity for businesses and individuals to come together to discuss the impact of Telecommuting, Remote and Distributed work (i.e. TRaD). Recruiter.com has called TRaD Works one of the top 10 HR and recruiting conferences for 2017.
An educational as well as networking event, the TRaD Works conference will feature an inspiring lineup of speakers and panelists sharing their views and experiences with the challenges and opportunities of remote work. Interactive workshops and panel discussions will explore topics including:
- best practices for managers and supervisors;
- implementation of remote work policies;
- and the cloud-based technologies that support telecommuting, remote, and distributed teams.

Should You or Your Company Attend the TRaD Works Conference?
The TRaD Works conference on the future of remote work may be of interest to you or your organization if you’re considering implementing or broadening telecommuting, remote and distributed policies. TRaD Works may also be of interest to leaders charged with tracking or implementing “future of work” policies, and to managers and individuals seeking to learn from the experiences of other organizations who have TRaD policies in place.
Representatives who’ll be in attendance at our 2017 TRaD Works forum include:
- CEOs and COOs
- remote team leaders
- IT and human resource directors
- Managers of global diversity and inclusion programs
- Talent acquisition and management leaders
- Work-life program leaders
A recent survey found that, increasingly the future of work is remote. That assertion is reinforced in Gallup’s “State of the American Workplace” survey in 2017, which noted an increase in the number of people working remotely–some 43 percent in 2016, compared to 39 percent in 2012.
The TRaD Works forum is an excellent opportunity for organizational leaders and others to embrace the reality of telecommuting, remote, and distributed work, and learn more about the future of remote work.
