  • (1888PressRelease) October 22, 2010 - Boston - Powwownow, the fastest growing free conference call provider, today announced the "Scariest Home Office" Contest to help home office workers and telecommuters make the most of their home offices. Between October 20 and October 29, U.S.-based home office workers can send in a photo of their "scary" office for a chance to win a $500 gift card to Office Depot.

    "Telecommuting and virtual work is on the rise - as evidenced by increased adoption of our free conference calling service - but we know that often, home offices are cobbled together with grandma's old furniture and children's school art," said Andrew Pearce, CEO of Powwownow. "We think a home office should be just as professional as their in-office counterparts - so this is our way of helping. Send us your worst examples of home office nightmares, and if the voters agree, we will have you on your way to a better work space - on us."
