Most states in America have issued shelter-in-place orders, meaning millions of U.S. employees have turned to teleworking.

But, for some, transitioning to a work-from-home model isn’t that simple.

As of 2018, only one-quarter of the U.S. workforce worked some hours from home on an average day, according to the Brookings Institute.

This means some companies are experimenting with working from home for what may be the very first time.

In order to help more employers and workers make the change, the Atlanta Regional Commission has created videos and teleworking resources.

Roz Tucker, managing director of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Mobility Services Group, Georgia Commute Options, joined “Closer Look with Rose Scott” by phone Thursday to share some teleworking tips and resources and to talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic could change the way Atlantans work long term.
