Work-Life Programs in the Federal Government
On May 4, 2010, Partnership President and CEO, Max Stier, testified before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on the Oversight of Government Management, the Federal Workforce and the District of Columbia on flexible work arrangements and work-life programs in the federal government. Specifically, Stier discussed the barriers to wide-spread use, opportunities for improvement and the potential benefits of telework and other FWA’s. Stier recommended the immediate passage of telework legislation that passed the committee earlier this Congress. In addition, Stier also touched on OPM’s new Results Only Work Environment program and the campus wellness program between OPM, Interior and GSA.
