Overview

A Five Step Management Process for Managing Teleworkers

The federal government wants it and most federal workers want it: so why is it that teleworking is not being adopted as enthusiastically as it should be? One of the main reasons is the reluctance of many federal managers to have their staff working out of sight – out of the office. There is still a strongly held view by many managers that staff working from home will not be as productive, and that their managerial authority will be undermined as a result. The Handbook for Managing Teleworkers should be enough to convince the most reluctant of these managers that almost all these views are myths. In fact, the reality is the exact opposite. Teleworkers can be more productive - and the most efficient teleworkers are those that are properly managed. This Handbook is an easy to follow and implement Five-Step Toolkit for all managers and decision makers involved with teleworking. It explains how to set up a telework program, how to train managers and in turn, how managers should train and supervise their teleworkers. For more details, visit www.GTIBookstore.com
