Expand the use of telework (Flexiplace) to save money on office space and energy.
Department of Energy
A need for a federal mandated teleworker policy is needed. The savings using tele-working has been substantiated across the board. With todays technology, working from home is a no brainier and the cost and employee moral savings alone is extensive. Consolidated federal work space should be the norm and workers should be encouraged to work from home on a normal schedule.
Teleworking saves energy, reduces the need for office space, and improves morale.
