Feds ahead at home

A telework survey conducted by CDW-Government, released last month, found that federal agencies have outpaced the private sector in the move toward telework.

Among the results of the survey:

52% of federal employees said they are eligible to telework, and 44% said they have the option to telework.

16% of private-sector employees in the survey said they are eligible for telework, and 15% said they have the option.

The percentage of federal workers with the option to telework has grown from 36% in 2005 to 38% in 2006 to 44% this year.

Among federal employees who telework, 91% of them said they work from home; 6% work from another agency location; 5% work from a coffee shop; and 3% from a federal telework center. (Some may use more than one of those locations.)
