In its look back at this year’s Telework Week, Polycom notes some encouraging numbers: 94 percent of the 163,000 pledges to telework were from the government. Those who pledged worked two days a week from home and saved 4.5 hours and $90 a week.
If federal employees worked remotely an average of two days a week, the federal government would save $8.7B per year.
The post also addresses concerns about productivity from those who telecommute:
Today’s virtual desktop and cloud storage solutions enable federal employees to access their desktops, applications and important files from anywhere with an Internet connection. And today’s video teleconferencing (VTC) solutions eliminate concerns about collaboration and communication by enabling employees to have face-to-face conversations regardless of their physical location.
