“Telework has tremendous potential to transform the way government works and to support a modern and adaptive workplace –it empowers the entire Federal workforce to be mobile and agile for the 21st Century economy,” said Martha Johnson, Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).  “As the Federal government’s workplace solutions provider, GSA is leveraging its expertise to help advance the mobility of the government’s workforce and support teleworking initiatives.”

“Telework Week 2012 is an opportunity to highlight the many benefits of telework – enabling us to enhance workplace efficiency, improve the environment, ensure our safety, and improve our quality of life,” said Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.), author of the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010.

“For the second year, Cisco is very excited to support the Telework Exchange in hosting Telework Week in March 2012,” said Patrick Finn, vice president, U.S. Federal Organization, Cisco.  “The benefits of telework in government are far-reaching and multifarious, affecting those at all levels and in all roles. Through our involvement with Telework Week, we hope to educate and inspire participants in all stages of telework planning to shift into high gear for program execution. Approximately 70 percent of Cisco’s workforce relies on mobile collaboration, so we understand the value teleworking brings to organizations by increasing productivity and field effectiveness, and making smarter use of human capital.”

“According to Telework Week 2011, if all full-time wage and salary workers in the U.S. telework two days a week for one year, they would collectively save more than $215 billion in commuting costs,” said Cindy Auten, general manager for Telework Exchange.  “That’s important in this economy.  The goal for 2012 is to take Telework Week to the max.  Telework savings are substantial, and we want to demonstrate not only why to do it, but how to do it.”
