Big telework goals being met by a tiny agency
Friday - 9/10/2010, 6:52pm EDT
According to the White House, agencies were asked to "develop, implement and annually update a plan that prioritizes sustainability actions based on a positive return on investment for the American taxpayer and to meet energy, water, and waste reduction targets."
Standing out from the crowd is a tiny independent agency, the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Part of the challenge in meeting the "goal of a 28 percent reduction by 2020 in direct greenhouse gas pollution" is the fact that it doesn't own any buildings or vehicles.
Listed second on the IMLS' Sustainability Accomplishments in a press release is that "nearly 25 percent of the agency staff telework at least occasionally."
And blowing the doors off the President's goals is the IMLS's intention to "Increase percentage of employees who telework at least one day per week to 50 percent by fiscal year 2013."
It may be tiny, but when it comes to telework, you can hear the IMLS roar.
