The flexibility that comes with working remotely “may prove to be a silver lining of the pandemic,” according to a new report from Jacobs Workplace Performance Strategies.

“We need to build on the momentum and opportunities to advance mission; support our workforce, families, and communities; and increase efficiency, resilience, and agility for ongoing transformation of work for the DOD and all federal agencies and partners,” Amy Manley and Ellen Keable wrote in the report, “Moving Forward with Telework in the Defense Community.”

The report, which was released last week during ADC Reconnect in Washington, D.C., outlines new opportunities that telework flexibility may create for service members, military families, veterans, communities, DOD and other stakeholders.
