The City of Houston recognizes the opportunities that a flexible work arrangement such as a hybrid-telework program can present. The pandemic showed us that teleworking can result in improved productivity and improved morale when implemented correctly.
In July 2022, the City of Houston allowed seven departments to participate in the Pilot Hybrid-Telework Program to assist with assessing a long-term solution for telework for the City of Houston. After reviewing the assessment, the City of Houston has arrived at a long-term solution for a telework program.
AP 3-36: Hybrid-Telework Program, effective May 1, 2023, outlines the process for how the City’s telework program will be implemented, should the department director decide. Implementation shall be conducted in phases by departments, starting with the departments that participated in pilot.
Please review the resources on this page such as the policy, FAQs and more. More information will be disseminated to the departments as their phase of implementation approaches in accordance with the current implementation schedule in the policy.
The schedule below has been approved by the Mayor. However, department directors will still determine if and when their department may implement the hybrid telework program. Employees should direct questions to their supervisor.
