Published in Working Mother Magazine Online: How Being Part of a Remote Workforce Works for Me

 

"Finding a company that allows me to work from home has allowed me to organize my life with my family my way. But it takes vision and commitment from the top down." by Stacey Sicurella.

My recent company-wide meeting brought it all together for my co-workers and I – how we have found a way to have our version of work-life balance. We gathered in the comfortable
