「テレワーク」は、離れたを示す「tele」と働くの「work」を組み合わせた造語で「遠いところで働く」という意味です。

インターネットやパソコンなどITを使って、会社以外の場所で働くことで、自宅で働く「在宅勤務」や勤務先以外のオフィススペースで働く「サテライトオフィス勤務」などがその代表例です。(source)

I don't understand the logic behind it? It seems more logical to use それ(replacing テレワーク)の代表例 because the sentence before is about テレワーク and not about (representative) examples.

XやYなどがその代表例です means literally "X and Y are those representative examples" but the sentence before is not about examples at all so I don't understand why we would use 'those'?

I understand that it means that those are prime examples of 「テレワーク」(deducted with the context and the example sentences that I found where その代表例 is used) but I don't understand the structure and the logic.

その doesn't mean "those" but "its" and in this case it indicates that of テレワーク. In short, it's equivalent to それの while それの is less natural than その.
