GSA's Workplace Innovation Lab Updates Agencies' IT Strategies
The General Services Administration continues to test optimal workplace IT setups, in part to make the office more inviting as the White House demands federal employees reduce the amount of time they work remotely.
In this episode of Feds in the Field, we'll show you what the approximately 5,000 federal employees who have passed through the WIL's doors have experienced as they tested the various IT and furniture offerings on display, supplying feedback on their experience.
