Benefits of Remote Work

A Better Work/Life Balance for Employees

Employees of the State of Arizona are part of a forward-thinking culture focused on creating work environments that support efficiency and productivity in service to all Arizonans. The digital technology available today means “work” is no longer a physical place but performance that can happen anywhere.

The State of Arizona strives for a work culture that affords employees flexibility, autonomy, and trust. 

Across our many agencies, boards, commissions, and other offices, State employees are able to work remotely (when their job role allows), in their homes, in offices, and in hoteling spaces.

By offering the option of full-time remote, or a partial telecommute schedule, employees enjoy improved work/life balance, report higher job satisfaction, and are more productive.


Taxpayers Benefit from Cost Savings

The State sees less turnover from employees who participate in remote work, thereby reducing ongoing recruiting and training costs. In 2020, the State saved taxpayers more than $3 million in annual cost savings by reducing physical space needs.
