Feds Experiencing More Resistance to Telework, According to New Survey

 In a flash survey conducted this week by the Government Business Council, nearly one in three federal employees “reported that their agency’s leadership has become somewhat or much less accepting of telework within the last six months, compared to only 19 percent who said leaders have become more accepting,” with 51 percent of respondents reporting little to no noticeable change.

As Government Executive notes, the survey follows “significant roll-backs” of telework programs at both the USDA and the Department of Education.
Of the respondents who reported having seen a change in policy over the past year, “nearly half said the new rules are ‘less suited’ to their needs than the previous policy.”
