The nature of work has substantially changed. The rise of knowledge work and the evolution of technology afford Oregon state government the opportunity to reimagine the work we do.

Work Reimagined highlights and encourages the ability to work remotely. Working remotely is a mutually agreed upon work option between the agency and the employee in which the employee w​orks at an alternate worksite, such as the employee’s home (​Policy 5​0.050.01). Working remotely is also referred to as “telecommuting” or “teleworking.”
