The convergence of new technologies and business trends, along with employee preferences to work from home, is driving a rapid growth in telework. Additionally, the growth of web-enabled applications, collaboration tools and Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology has helped government departments and agencies of all sizes to allow their employees to work off-site, at least part of the time. In addition to improved technology, which has enabled the move toward employee mobility, other drivers include greater employee retention, potentially lower real estate costs due to workers spending less time in the office, and greater productivity because employees can use travel time or waiting time to complete work-related tasks.
