NIH Telework Program
Are you tired of driving around looking for a parking space? Spending hours in traffic jams on the beltway? Not getting your project completed because of constant interruptions? Telework can be a good solution for these and many other issues, whether you work from home or a telework center, and whether you do so every day, once a week, once a month, or a few times a year.
The resources on this website will help you explore telework at NIH, decide whether telework is a good option for you or your employees, and learn more about working with and managing teleworkers.
