Idaho National Laboratory Site — Information Management (IM) specialists who support Fluor Idaho at the Idaho National Laboratory Site were tasked with preparing hundreds of employees to work remotely using company-provided laptop computers or enabling workers to securely use privately owned home computers or laptops. This massive telecommuting effort was needed to enable the company to continue supporting mission-critical cleanup work and programs in compliance with the 1995 Idaho Settlement Agreement and other pacts with the state of Idaho.
"Before the pandemic, we had very few remote users," Blaine Jensen, Fluor Idaho IM manager, said. "Now, we're working toward nearly half of our entire workforce being able to work remotely."
