Dear Friends,

We’ve spent the last eight years supporting the awareness and adoption of telework. The Federal government has made its mark in telework, and the conversation is now including issues such as workforce management and mobile IT strategies. The conversation is changing – and so are we.

We are pleased to introduce our new name – Mobile Work Exchange. Bookmark our new site at www.mobileworkexchange.com. As telework drives the mobile IT discussion forward, we will expand our role to cover telework and mobile IT discussions.

“Throughout its existence, Telework Exchange (now Mobile Work Exchange) has been at the forefront of the Federal telework conversation,” said Dr. Wendell Joice, notably known as the father of Federal telework. “As the conversation changes, I am pleased to see their continued focus on telework as well as their new approach to mobile IT. We are at a critical point – let’s make telework and mobility happen in the Federal government.”

Our Expansion

Our research finds that the majority of Federal IT executives expect more regular teleworkers in the next two years. As telework drives mobile IT initiatives forward, we are expanding our role to cover telework as well as issues impacting the mobile IT environment. 

“Today’s workforce is becoming more agile than ever, and telework is one of the components driving the mobile-enabled 21st century workforce,” said Charles McClam, deputy chief information officer, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  “At USDA, we’ve made it possible for our employees to effectively perform their duties from anywhere using web-enabled technologies and mobile applications.  These technologies and applications, coupled with effective telework policies and guidance, have all played a vital role in allowing USDA to increase employee satisfaction and productivity as well as securely and efficiently work with our customers outside the traditional brick and mortar office environment.  We look forward to our continued partnership with Mobile Work Exchange to discuss such important topics for today’s Federal workforce.”

We will continue our longstanding initiatives such as Telework Week, and expand our programs for the Town Hall Meetings and research. In addition to discussing best practices in telework, performance management, effective communication, recruitment and retention, work-life balance, and other workforce-related topics, we will also discuss IT issues such as cyber security/privacy, BYOD, mobile device management, virtualization, and cloud.

We value your feedback. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions on this transition, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All the best,

The Mobile Work Exchange Team
