The State Worker

Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

July 7, 2011
Teleworking forum tonight

The American Society for Public Administration's Sacramento chapter will host an expert discussion tonight about how managers can use new technology to get the best results out of their teleworking employees.

The group says as the generation of digital natives joins the workforce, more employees will be working away from the office. But federal, state and local supervisors don't necessarily have an easy way to keep an eye on them. Dr. Milton Chen , chief executive officer of VSee Labs; Tony Souza, vice president of Secure Computing Environment and Michael Dziak, chief operating officer of, will be showing off best practices to change that.

The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the USC State Capital Center at 1800 I St. in Sacramento. Attendees can RSVP to Paul Danczyk at or (916) 442-6911, or participate via online stream here or by phone at (800) 509-6344 and access code 0846955.
