Training & Resources
It is important for teleworking employees and their managers to have the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to succeed.

Telework Training

OPM offers interactive telework courses for employees and managers.  Telework 101 for Employees teaches employees strategies for teleworking efficiently, staying "plugged in" to the office, and managing interactions with co-workers and customers.  Telework 101 for Managers walks managers through the process of developing a program, selecting employees for telework, and managing effectively in a telework environment. Agencies can also download the Telework 101 for Employees SCORM package and the Telework 101 for Managers SCORM package.

Telework FAQs

The Telework FAQs are designed to assist individuals in finding answers to general questions promptly.  You can refine your search of FAQs by audiences—Employees, Manager, & Telework Coordinators.   If you have individualized concerns, we ask that you contact your agency’s telework coordinator.  To find your Telework Coordinator, search OPM’s Work-Life Contact Tool.
