Work is Something You Do, Not Somewhere You Go: The Case for Telework

November 16th, 2010 at 12:00PM

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.

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.
