Telework

Telework is the ability to work from home or a satellite office one or more days per week. In the Washington, DC area, employees may work from one of 15 telework centers. These full-service facilities provide a professional work environment equipped with multiple work stations, up-to-date equipment and office support. Millions of people are also working from home simply by picking up the phone or turning on their computers--saving themselves and their businesses millions of dollars.
