Title Evaluating the Success of Telecommuting at the Census Bureau
Access date 11.06.2004
Abstract Many administrative programs have been launched at the Census Bureau with little prior testing and evaluation. In an effort to create programs that are mutually desirable for both employees and the agency, the Census Bureau has started to thoroughly evaluate such programs before full implementation. The first program to undergo a large-scale, comprehensive evaluation was a telecommuting pilot that involved employees working in three areas at Census. The purpose of the evaluation was to measure the effect of telecommuting on key factors such as performance, productivity, and job satisfaction. In an attempt to attribute any differences in these factors to telecommuting, the evaluation required the collection of repeated measurements before and after the pilot. In this paper, we compare results from the pre- and post-telecommuting periods to determine what changes occurred as a result of the telecommuting pilot. Furthermore, we use logistic regression to measure associations between participation in the telecommuting pilot and work performance.
