Federal agency puts its Napoleon Complex to good use

- September 22, 2010 - 0 Comments

Small, but mighty independent federal agency the Institute of Museum and Library Services is doing its part to not only meet, but exceed the goals outlined in the Federal Agency Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans.

If you’ve never heard of IMLS, the agency’s mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. With 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums across the nation, this is no small task.

Yet, nearly 25 percent of the agency’s staff telework at least occasionally. But, the IMLS is not stopping with a mere 25 percent. Its goal is to have 50 percent of its employees telework at least one day per week by fiscal year 2013.

So, in honor of National Library Card Sign-up Month and the Smithsonian’s National Museum Day on Saturday, Sept. 25 (click here for your free museum ticket at participating museums across the country), we salute the IMLS as they set their goals higher than Napoleon could reach to reduce their carbon footprint. Now, that’s a new way of working!

What is your agency doing to achieve the goals outlined in the Federal Agency Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans? Drop us a comment and let us know.
