Standard Hours of Operation Need Not Apply

Patrick Avery

IT Business Edge Knowledge Network contributor The Computer Guy posted a sample IT Staffing and Hours of Operation policy when the new site launched in January. The policy suggests a typical 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday schedule, with IT staff answering problems on an on-call basis during the evenings and weekends.


Addressing overtime, the policy says staff may be required to work overtime to provide necessary coverage, respond to emergency calls or to perform certain job functions that are best performed outside normal working hours.


With companies embracing telecommuting and other unique ways of working, it will be curious to see how companies tinker with their policies to come up with more opportunities to work outside the a traditional office. Or will they just wing it and not worry about changing their policies?


What policies do you have in place to address the changing ways of working?
