Policy, Data & Oversight / Future of Work

Reimagining our work:

The pandemic forced agencies to transition to a new way of working. As the Federal government considers the post reentry environment, we need to leverage the lessons learned from our work during the pandemic and reimagine how we work.

OPM is here to help. Among the many functions OPM performs, we provide leadership and support, as more employees re-enter the physical worksite, through the development of policy guidance, resources, technical support and training.

This latest guidance was developed to help agencies move forward by explaining how existing workforce policies can support transitioning to a new work environment.
