Telework: Is it working for you yet? | #FedBuzz

“On paper, teleworking plans look good,” Federal Diary’s Joe Davidson wrote in his most recent column.

But implementation of telework policies in the federal government has been anything but smooth, as Davidson explains:

An Office of Personnel Management (OPM) report on the “Status of Telework in the Federal Government” indicates that 32 percent of federal workers are eligible to telework. Of those, fewer than 25 percent actually teleworked in September. OPM doesn’t know how many employees teleworked during the recent period of storms and heat.

We’ve asked similar questions of Federal Eye readers before, but it is time for a status update. For this week’s Federal Buzz question of the week , tell us whether your agency is making any progress on implementing telework programs, and what the biggest hang-ups are.
