Was your agency able to benefit from a robust telework program

When winter storms forced DC-based federal agencies to close, was your agency able to benefit from a robust telework program? Federal telework programs save money, reduce greenhouse emissions, and improve Continuity of Operations planning; yet only about five percent of the federal workforce teleworks. Agencies cite IT funding and security as key barriers to participating in telework programs. Hughes has the answer—managed network services.
