Six Tips on Introducing a Telework Program

Important tips to ensure your telecommuting program is a success.

Telecommuting arrangements can be win-win situations for both employees and employers. Workers can make real gains in productivity and enjoy workday flexibility, while the business gets an opportunity to reduce costs.

 

Before granting permission for telework, management should develop a telecommuting policy to clearly describe rules for working outside of the primary place of work. Info-Tech Research Group's Telework Policy and Agreement template provides a detailed starting point from which you can build your own procedures and offer telework arrangements.

 

When developing your policy, Info-Tech's policy template helps you define the:

  • Scope: whom the policy applies to
  • Eligibility: the requirements for telework approval
  • Application process: the documents and steps specific to your organization
  • Work schedule: the hours and times when teleworkers will perform job duties
  • Work space: the secondary work location and its characteristics
  • Equipment/Software/Services: the equipment and other resources needed to perform job duties at the secondary location
  • Liability: whom is responsible for injuries or other accidents that occur at the secondary location
  • Orientation/Training: any special orientation or training necessary for participation

 


Using this template, you can create a successful telework program with well-defined rules that meet the needs of both employees and the business.
