Telecommuting is an alternative work arrangement that allows employees to work at home, on the road, or in an alternative location designated by an agency for all or part of the regular work week.

The State of North Dakota considers telecommuting or "outstationing" of employees to be a viable option to increase employment opportunities throughout the state and to provide workplace flexibility as a key component in recruiting and retaining skilled government workers. Agencies are encouraged to consider a telecommuting or outstationing option prior to advertising vacancies.
