If you read our most recent story about telework then you know the numbers of teleworking feds are increasing.
As of September 2011, there were 168,558 employees teleworking out of 684,589 deemed eligible to telework. That represents a 48 percent increase over the 113,946 teleworking employees reported in 2009, the last time the government surveyed its workforce on teleworking habits.
But how do federal employees deal with the equipment and technology costs if they are able to telework? Does your agency require you to purchase and pay for all the services you need or is the cost shared? Does the agency pick up all of the costs?
