National Science Foundation

At one point during the pandemic, the National Science Foundation had 100% of its workforce teleworking. This wasn’t by luck. The agency had plenty of experience supporting telework prior to COVID-19’s arrival. And CIO Dorothy Aronson told FedScoop earlier this year she thinks that this will stick around in a hybrid model even when the pandemic ends. “I expect after COVID that more people will appreciate working remotely and a higher portion of our workforce may want to work remotely,” she said. “I would anticipate that we’ll need to look very closely at those hybrid meetings, where some people are in the office and some people are at home, to even out that interaction.”
