36% of government employees have been given the option to telework

The survey by CDW Government found that 35% of respondents said they are not eligible for teleworking, and another 14% were not sure. Only 36% of respondents said they’ve been given the option to telework, and 19% said they have used technology to work from home or other places away from the office. But 87% of employees surveyed would telecommute if given the chance. The survey of 139 federal employees and 148 government IT workers, with a margin of error of about 7%, was conducted through the Internet and through live interviews at car pool and lunch locations frequented by federal employees.
