Telework in Federal Government Study

Government Business Council and TANDBERG recently teamed up to study telework habits, challenges, and best practices in federal government.

Some key findings from the study:

  • Over 90% of respondents cited phone and email as required tools to telework.
  • 95% of respondents reported their home office was the chief location for teleworking.
  • Among respondents who are eligible, the most widely reported reason for not teleworking is an unsupportive manager (45%).
  • 67% of respondents believe that agencies can overcome concerns about supervision by setting clear goals for teleworkers.¬†
