Essential Teleworking Tools

Having the flexibility to work outside of the office has never been more important. In today’s climate, the ability to telework is crucial to maintaining a balanced home and work life. Technology allows us to achieve that balance without compromising on having access to the tools previously only found in the office. The Division of Technology Services now offers our State employees some extremely productive tools to continue their hard work, wherever they are.

Check out the new Essential Teleworking Tools Spark Page. This page will be updated periodically with upcoming training opportunities that employees can attend to learn more about the software that they have access to, as well as ways to inquire about software they might find useful.
