Comprehensive Workplace Transformation
How enhanced mobility can drive federal cost savings
Today’s government-wide budget-neutral environment is requiring agencies to do more with less, even as complex missions and mandates continue to deepen and grow. Agencies will have to take immediate steps to address Continuity of Operations (COOP), declining morale across the federal workforce, and requirements to reduce real estate footprint and operating costs through the lenses of facilities footprint, operations, human capital, and workplace initiatives. The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 and related laws and executive orders impose additional regulations on already strained agency operations. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is one of many departments and agencies facing these challenges. DHS has an opportunity to address its operating challenges by seizing the momentum of the current fiscal environment to transform the workplace in order to realize significant cost savings, streamlined operations, and workforce engagement. To facilitate workplace transformation in a budget-neutral environment, DHS must take a holistic approach, moving beyond just telework to address overall workforce needs, the workplace environment, and supporting technology infrastructure to create a culture of flexibility and mobility.
