We have statistics, so it must be real

According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, telecommuting has increased 103% since 2005, and in 2016 twenty-three percent of employees did some percentage of their work from home, with 3.3 million of us working from home full-time. This tells us that while the trend is aggressively moving toward at-home work, the bulk of employees are still on job sites and offices. So if the at home worker is to be successful, it follows that the more they can assimilate with their traditionally dispatched colleagues and customers who are largely location-based, the better.

With agencies tasked with delivering a modernized, streamlined and ultimately more citizen facing federal government environment, the focus on staff productivity and working practices has never been so great.
