Telework Guidance

Telework Guide

Cover of the 2021 Guide to Telework and Remote Work in the Federal Government

The Guide to Telework in the Federal Government has been updated to replace the formal guide published in 2011 and is designed to address policy gaps and provide resources to help contextualize the continued evolution of telework as a critical workplace flexibility. The new guide also features a Part II - Technical Guide on Remote Work: A review of implications, considerations, and strategies for the appropriate use of remote work arrangements. The intent of this 2-part Guide is to help agencies leverage Telework and Remote Work in the Federal Government to better meet our human capital needs and improve mission delivery. Though presented separately, these two parts may be used in conjunction with one another as an interdependent resource intended to provide comprehensive flexible workplace guidance for Federal agencies, Telework Managing Officers (TMOs), telework program coordinators, managers, supervisors, and employees. The new Guide to Telework in the Federal Government and Technical Guide on Remote Work are intended to provide agencies with practical resources and information to assist them in evaluating how to leverage these tools to meet mission-critical needs for organizations and balance the needs of a changing workforce.
