New Generation of Feds Advancing Telework, Expert Says
January 31, 2012
The General Services Administration and other agencies are shrinking their office space, forcing some employees to telework. Federal green initiatives aim to keep people out of their cars. And a year ago, Congress passed new telework legislation, calling on agencies to establish strong telework policies.
"The implementation is moving forward across the agencies," said Tom Simmons, an expert on federal telework initiatives and vice president for Federal Systems at Citrix Systems. "I think some are more advanced than others."
Simmons spoke to The Federal Drive with Tom Temin on Tuesday morning about the various motivations behind the adoption and implementation of telework across the federal government.
