Recently, the pandemic may have forced you to close your physical office and send employees off to work from home. How prepared were you for this sudden shift? If your company had a remote work, work from home or telecommuting policy already in place, it probably helped in the transition. (If you don’t have one, click the link below to download a remote work policy template you can customize.)
This kind of policy spells out the agreement between an employer and their employees involving work outside the office. It defines the expectations and responsibilities for employees, clarifies who is eligible for remote work, covers how to request telecommuting privileges, and explains the approval process for remote work.
