Are You An Employee?
Telework is one way to help you manage your work/life commitments.
When you telework, you not only get a more convenient working
environment; you save commute time and expenses. It may surprise you
that the average State employee will spend six (40-hour) workweeks
in their car per year just commuting to and from work. When you
telework each week, you gain yourself added personal time while
reducing commuter traffic and the resulting air pollution that
degrades everyone’s quality of life in the Valley.
Since 1993, Arizona Governors have included telework as an
important part of their plan to help put an end to our notorious
Brown Cloud. Additionally, telework serves as a key business
strategy to help the State attract and retain quality employees.
All State agencies, boards and commissions are mandated by
Executive Order to
implement the State of Arizona Telework Program with the goal of
having 20% of all employees in Maricopa County actively
Within Arizona State Government, offering the opportunity to work
from home is a management option; teleworking is not a universal
employee benefit/entitlement. Supervisors/managers will determine
which employees are qualified and identify specific jobs suitable
for work away from the traditional office.
