Mandate Telework-Don't let managers/supervisors be the decision-makers unless there's a "performance problem" or Security issues. Face it--Managers want their employees under their thumbs. There's a Congressional Mandate that all Federal Agencies implement telework to the maximum extent possible. Personally speaking, my portion of the "carbon footprint" could be eliminated if I didn't have a manager who openly admits to hating when his employees telework. Agencies are "checking the blocks" but aren't truly implementing this initiative that would make immeasurable environmental differences in the National Capital Region. Congressional Committee: Get the GAO to survey government employees on this telework initiative. They'll tell you the truth.
