The 21st Century Workforce:
How to Manage Teleworkers
The Federal Government wants it; most federal workers want it so why is it that teleworking is not being
adopted as enthusiastically as it should be? Especially since by all measures, it is coming. Already, a
labor arbitrator for a local federal government union, has ruled that telework “is a right, not a privilege”.
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 own 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.
The Handbook discusses all the arguments that have been put forward against teleworking and debunks them using all the latest surveys and case studies. There are chapters on problems and how to overcome them and how to motivate through counseling, coaching and developing trust.
This handbook book is an A-Z how-to guide aimed at managers tasked with introducing teleworking or overseeing teleworkers and ensuring that everything runs smoothly. The rules for managing teleworking are the same whether you are a federal or state employee or work for a private company or organization. The book is also very useful to people who are thinking of teleworking or trying to persuade their employers to introduce it.
The Handbook uses Government Training Inc “at a glance” symbols in the margins which immediately identify “must-do’s”, useful tips, points to bear in mind and checklists.
It is an invaluable resource for all telework managers and those who might be tasked with taking on this responsibility and an essential companion guide to Government Institute’s Handbook for Managing Teleworkers published earlier this year.
