Work is Something You Do, Not Somewhere You Go: The Case for Telework
Friday - 11/12/2010, 6:20pm EST
Work is something you do, not someplace you go. Federal Agencies are looking at Telework as a way to lower the cost of government, attract and retain top talent, enable emergency readiness plans, lower their carbon footprint, and take advantage of technology improvements to work more efficiently.
The current administration recognizes the opportunity to leverage telework to solve some of the government's greatest challenges, and has long championed the economic and social benefits of telework expansion.
FedsTelework, a FedScoop production, is pleased to bring you a panel discussion with Government IT leaders including Bill Piatt from GSA and Pamela Budda from DOD to discuss telework solutions in the federal government.
