USDA work-life office promotes telework, other flexible programs
Monday - 1/28/2013, 7:32pm EST
Cross discussed how work/life and wellness portfolio — which includes flexible work schedules, telework policies, and employee health and wellness initiatives — fits into USDA's human-resources strategy.
Cross said her office aims to provide free and low-cost programs that ultimately allow the agency to recruit and retain a high-quality workforce.
And, perhaps more important, the office aims to "inspire and engage" the federal workforce even as workers are being asked to do more with less.
Cross has spearheaded USDA's participation in the the Telework Exchange group's "Telework Week," which will be held March 4-8. USDA has launched an internal ad campaign calling on employees to pledge to participate in the week-long program.
Cross was also recognized by WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress' "Rising Star Award."
