The way state and local government employees work has changed radically. Recent research from the Center for Digital Government shows that about half of state and local employees are remote, and many public officials say they expect to continue work-from-home options indefinitely. Although the shift toward more flexible work options has many benefits – an August survey of teleworkers in California’s Department of General Services found 80 percent want to continue the arrangement permanently – government agencies must evolve their management practices to support this new work environment.
