A study by the General Services Administration in the US concluded that the lack of investment and commitment in making telework acceptable across the government is not only hampering the telecommuting workforce, but agencies overall are losing out on productivity.
“Technical resources and costs that are being used to support telework are uncontrolled from an agencywide, programmatic point of view,” the report said. “Therefore, these investments are likely to lead to inefficiencies, gaps, and possibly limited value or return.”
Work @ Home Father’s Day will be celebrated this year on Friday, June 16. Observed each year on the Friday before Father’s Day, it recognizes those entrepreneurial or corporate telecommuting dads who have chosen the home as their office in hopes of improving family interaction, professional satisfaction – and balance between the two.
