A new name for the Telework Exchange

The Telework Exchange has changed its name to Mobile Work Exchange, part of public-private partnership’s rebranding efforts to expand its mission to increase focus on telework and lead mobile IT discussions in the federal government.

According to a Jan. 28 announcement, the Mobile Work Exchange will continue to provide best practices in telework, performance management, effective communication, recruitment and retention and other workforce-related topics, but will begin to key in on prime issues in mobile IT, such as cybersecurity, privacy, bring-your-own-device policies, mobile device management, virtualization and cloud. In making the shift, the organization has added a new resource center on mobile IT, and refreshed its monthly publication, now called The Mobile Worker.

The organizational change comes following the growth in government telework adoption as well as a new focus on encouraging mobility in the federal workforce. 

"We’ve spent the last eight years supporting the awareness and adoption of telework," said Cindy Auten, general manager of Mobile Work Exchange.  "Now that the federal government is moving telework in the fast lane, the conversation is changing.  And so are we. As telework drives the mobile IT discussion forward, we will expand our role to cover both telework and mobile IT topics."

Mobile Work Exchange plans to continue its annual Telework Week, which starts this year on March 4.
