Final Report


To evaluate the US Patent and Trademark Office’s current telework program, the Patent Hoteling Program, and make recommendations on its future, our team analyzed data collected by the USPTO and researched similar programs at other public and private companies. From our research and analysis we developed a set of recommendations to enable the future expansion of the PHP, including the structure of a pilot program and identifying the potential risks involved with this expansion.
