I am a Contracting Officer at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs National Acquisition Center (NAC), in Hines, IL. (Hines is about 13 miles or ~1 to 1 1/2 hours in commuter traffic, west of Chicago, IL).
We were allowed to commence telework a year ago.
Our director seems to be uncomfortable with the telework ethos. He is an “old school” manager who appears to need personnel in the office to feel in control of the NAC’s mission.
Are there any metrics available to indicate telework productivity?
