OPM shuts down office and opens telework horizons
Friday - 4/9/2010, 7:18pm EDT
As part of a pilot program, the test group is from OPM's headquarters in Washington and field offices in Pittsburgh and Boyers, Pa.
The Pittsburgh facility is a call center, ideal for the pilot. According to Justin Johnson, deputy chief of staff at OPM, five employees regularly come into the center, while 21 others telework full time.
Government Executive magazine reports the five "have agreed to work from home permanently so OPM can close the office," saving OPM more than more than $200,000 a year in rent and utilities.
The funds can then, according Johnson, be invested back into telework technology.
Johnson spoke at town hall meeting sponsored by the Telework Exchange.
