Comments from Workshop: • “Agencies do not have strong performance based culture” • “Culture will eat strategy” • “Performance is not counting people in seat rather driving results” • “Getting people and organization to manage performance is difficult” • “Telework forces you to manage” • “State of performance management is the issue” Common Challenges: Guidance: Lack of clear procedures and guidance (24% of the Federal agencies do not have telework policy and 12% of Federal employees have not been notified of telework eligibility) Management Resistance: Resistance from management and organization to promote open and flexible work environment. One of the top 5 barriers to open and flexible workplace. Access to Technology and Productive Work environment: Up to 3rd of the workforce works outside of the office. President Memo consolidation of gov’t real estate footprint Five Generation at Work Environment: 7% of the workforce are millennial but expected to grow Remote and mobile is not for every worker: Agency mission to be on site can limit mobile work environment. Misperceptions: Lack of visibility in office will limit career growth and performance • “Average building utilization rate 35 -45% on a daily basis” • “Everyone trying to right size building to employees….utilization of 80-90%” • “An Open environment leads to more healthy work environment” • “1/3 people will never be happy. 1/3 people will be happy no matter what you do.
