Expanding Federal Telework Could Save $12 Billion a Year
Friday, September 13th, 2013
“Released last week by Global Workplace Analytics and the Telework Research Network, the report estimated that well-implemented federal telework programs could save taxpayers between $6 billion and $12 billion per year.
“More specifically, if 88 percent of the 32 percent of employees OPM deemed eligible to telework in 2011 did so two days per week, the government would save roughly $6 billion per year. This breaks down to real estate savings of up to 30 percent, productivity increases of 12.5 percent, a 4 percent decrease in turnover, and a 3-day average decrease in absenteeism.”
