Utah expands teleworking pilot for state employees

Over the last year, Utah has been conducting an experiment of sorts with its state employees. As part of a pilot program on teleworking, dozens of workers have been staying home at least three days a week. Officials wanted to see the impact on productivity in state offices, on air quality, and on employee satisfaction. Spoiler: it was a resounding success and the state is now vastly expanding the program.
