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.

Kate Lister‘s insight:

“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.”
