Ars Telework Agreement

The idea may have been in the 1970s, but the potential for mass telework really developed in the early years of the 21st century. While about 50% of adults in the United States had Internet access in 2000, this figure had risen to more than 75% in 2010 and is currently about 90%, according to data from the Pew Research Center. In particular, broadband usage has increased from virtually no more than 2000 in U.S. homes to more than 60 percent of U.S. households in 2010. (Currently, an estimated 42.8 million U.S. citizens do not have access to broadband at home.) The Arizona State Telework Program was first launched in 1990 as a pilot program to improve air quality by reducing shuttle-related pollution, in accordance with ARS 49-588. Following the success of the pilot project, the program was officially launched in 1993 by the Executive Order. The current executive order provides for implementation in each agency, board of directors and each commission, with the aim of obtaining a 20 per cent participation among Maricopa district officials. The State of Arizona Telework program is led by state policy (revised in 2020), which is a general framework for teleworkers in all jurisdictions and does not seek to meet the specific conditions and needs of all. Agencies can develop their own actions to meet the Agency`s needs. In the 1980s, the State of California commissioned a study on the potential costs and benefits of expanding telework among public servants. The final report (PDF) published in 1990 is a very familiar melody of the one that is still sung today.

Dell Inc. is proud to encourage remote work. The company published a report (PDF) in 2016 outlining its telework policy as the driving force behind the company`s sustainable development efforts. “Dell Work from Home programs reduce approximately 1.15 tonnes of CO2e per employee per year,” the report notes, “most of the decline being due to employee greenhouse gas emissions and a lower percentage due to Dell`s greenhouse gas emissions. Currently, the company estimates that its telework programmes prevent 35,000 tonnes of CO2e per year compared to all staff. Google, which has tended not to support large-scale telecommuting in the past, ordered most of its 8,000 employees in its Dublin office to stay home this week and work remotely after an employee reported “flu-like symptoms” on Monday. Twitter also did a great job this week against COVID-19 and “strongly encouraged” all employees around the world to work from home if they were able to do so, and to tax employees in Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea. And Facebook not only canceled its F8 developer conference, but it also let employees know they could work from home without getting approval from the company`s management. Telework is a management option that allows qualified public servants to work one or more days a week from home or place of residence.

Well-trained staff and superiors are able to implement a successful telework agreement that can improve productivity, improve morale and help recruit and retain quality staff. “The benefits [of telecommuting] are manifold,” Johnny C. Taylor, President and CEO of the Human Resources Management Corporation, told Ars. “It`s a good thing from the employer`s point of view in a very tight labour market for a number of reasons.” Employees and superiors can learn more about telework requirements, training and answers to frequently asked questions by browsing through the menus to the right of this page.
