Telework has been cited as an impediment to knowledge transfer. The goal of this research was to explore knowledge transfer, a source of competitive advantage for organizations. An analysis was conducted to account for the role that telework, organizational support, and attitudes play in effective knowledge transfer amongst teleworkers. The theory has neglected to account for these factors amongst teleworkers, a shortcoming that is addressed. The research questions explored the depth of any relationship between these variables and knowledge transfer amongst teleworkers at a U.S. Federal Government agency. The results showed that there was no significant relationship between the variables and knowledge transfer. The results inform the theoretical and empirical understanding of knowledge transfer in a telework environment.
