Who telecommutes?

Last month, the Office of Personnel Management released its annual report to Congress on the status of telework in the federal government (to read the full report, go to GCN.com/809).

Fifty-two agencies, covering 1,802,032 employees, responded to OPM's survey. Of that total, 1,253,509 are eligible to telework, and 119,248 telework at least one day a month. That's 9.5 percent of the number of eligible workers; 6.6 percent of the total population covered in the survey. The survey included some very small agencies ' such as the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission, with a total population of four. The list below covers agencies with at least 1,000 employees eligible for teleworking.
