LOGITECH CELEBRATES “WORK FROM HOME WEEK” 2018
Logitech today announced celebrating its second annual ‘Work
From Home Week’ (#WFHWeek) from October 8-12, 2018.
The company recognizes 10

employers, employees, and the planet. Global Workplace Analytics shows that working from

employees but also lower load on public infrastructure, thereby reducing emissions and
creating carbon savings. We are also reaching out to all our partners to join us in this
initiative to make a difference to our people and our planet.”
