One of President Clinton’s family-friendly initiatives includes PL 106-346, which requires Executive agencies and departments to aggressively develop, implement, and encourage telecommuting arrangements for civilian employees. Telecommuting goals include the ability to attract and retain the highest caliber employees, increase employee morale, and enable employees to obtain a better balance between work and family. This research determines if the successes realized and lessons learned in other organizations (GSA, DCAA, and AT&T) can be applied to Southwest Division Naval Facilities Engineering Command (SWDIV) to develop an implementation strategy for flexible workplace arrangements at SWDIV. To determine if SWDIV should implement telecommuting, this study reviews existing research, analyzes laws and regulations, and analyzes cases of governmental and private organizations that have flexible workplace arrangements. The research data applied to SWDIV indicates that SWDIV should implement a Flexiplace program. SWDIV can reasonably expect to see benefits in employee retention, increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and better space utilization.
