The 2012 Telework Data Call is now available for agency input, according to a memo from the Chief Human Capital Officers Council.
Telework managing officers and coordinators who have been designated as points of contact for the survey will be notified via email. They will be provided with individual passwords to enter agency telework data into a web-based form.
Responses must be entered by close of business on December 7.
From the memo:
Telework is an important flexibility useful to achieving agency human capital objectives, including retention and performance. OPM is committed to supporting telework and assisting agencies to meet their goals. Congruent with requirements established in the Telework Enhancement Act, questions in the Data Call reflect the importance of goal-setting. The questions asked this year are the same, or substantially similar, to those asked in 2011.
We will assess agency progress with telework using the data we receive from the Call and other sources, such as the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. Results will be included in the 2013 Telework Status Report to Congress.
