Ars Telework Agreement


When the idea of teleworking landed in the 1970s, the “for” and “against” camps formed, consolidated, and quickly became rooted. In January 1984, Time magazine “Fans and Enemies Take a Second Look” at the spread of “experimental projects” in telecommuting – still new at that time, but perhaps destined to become much less. Dell Inc. is proud to promote remote work. In 2016, the company published a report (PDF) describing its telework policy as the driving force behind the company`s sustainability efforts. “Dell Work from Home programs reduce approximately 1.15 tonnes of CO2e per employee per year,” the report states, “with most of the reduction due to employee GHG emissions and a lower percentage of Dell`s greenhouse gas emissions. Currently, the company estimates that its teleworking programs prevent 35,000 tons of CO2e per year, compared to the total number of people commuting. Employees and superiors can learn more about telecommuting requirements, training, and answers to frequently asked questions by navigating through the menus on the right of this page. Google, which in the past has tended not to support large-scale telecommuting, ordered most of the 8,000 employees in its Dublin office to stay home this week and work remotely after an employee reported “flu-like symptoms” on Monday. Telework is a management option that allows qualified government personnel to work one or more days a week from home or in a government office close to home.

Well-trained employees and superiors are able to implement a successful teleworking agreement that can increase productivity, improve morale and help recruit and retain quality employees. The State of Arizona`s Telework Program was first launched in 1990 as a pilot program to improve air quality by reducing commuter pollution, in accordance with ARS 49-588. Following the success of the pilot project, the programme was formally set up by executive order in 1993. The current implementing regulation provides for implementation in each agency, board of directors and commission, with the aim of obtaining a 20 percent stake among Maricopa County officials. . . .
