Telework LIbrary/ Telecommuting Station

Government offices considering a new telework program should factor in that those employees will at some time need to report in person. A telework library could be set aside to allow a rotation of those employees who will not have a regular desk. This will help to save space when figuring the budget. In addition retirees could be utilized in telework positions as sources for advice according to their expertise and monitored so that others would be able to access the same information utilizing a shared database.


Alternatively employees could report to a telecommuting station convenient to their location. This could be in the form of a first-come first-served cubicle such as those you see in public libraries, in a federal office with an established share agreement, or at a home office agreed upon by the employee and officials for whom they work.
