The Office of Management and Budget directed federal agencies to increase in-person work at their offices, especially at headquarters, according to a memo released late last week.
“It is the expectation that … agencies will continue to substantially increase meaningful in-person work at Federal offices, particularly at headquarters and equivalents, while still using flexible operational policies as an important tool in talent recruitment and retention,” the memo said.
The memo defines “meaningful” in-person work as “purposeful, well-planned, and optimized for in-person collaboration.”
“Agencies are expected to consider this principle in their planning unless … additional flexibility existed in 2019 or the agency can demonstrate clear benefits of additional flexibility to organizational health and organizational performance,” the memo said.
