According to recent reports telework numbers could be through the roof in the federal government. The Washington Post reports that 32% of all federal workers could be teleworking if they wanted to be, yet only 25% of that number actually take advantage.
So the question is: Why Aren’t You Teleworking?
My answer would be that I think I’m actually more productive when I’m in the office but I’d assume I’m in the minority there. Plus, teleworking has some great benefits, like saving money and conserving energy resources (see how much you can save using our Telework Calculator). Beyond productivity and just wanting to be around people the only answer I can come up with is that the proper equipment needed for telework isn’t provided… is that the case where you are?
