Federal employees are rarely tied to their desks anymore and that means future workspace will be different, GSA Administrator Martha Johnson said July 21 at the FOSE Conference.
Only 50 percent of the GSA office is occupied Tuesday through Thursday, with Mondays and Fridays seeing only 30 percent capacity.
âTo sit at a desk is rarer thing these days,â Johnson said according to Federal Computer Week.âWhen you take down the walls and move to a space that is open, you can see how empty it is.â
FierceGovernment reports Johnson told the FOSE audience she works in a cubicle at the GSAâs temporary office located north of Union Station. She will work in a cubicle when the five-year renovation of the GSAâs headquarters in northwest Washington is complete.
“I believe that if people need a private office, they should go to most private office this government allows them — which is their home.â Johnson said. âThey should work at home.”
