The Remote Work Model Is Here to Stay — Are You Prepared?
Nearly five million workers in the U.S. work from home at least part of the week (Global Workplace Analytics and Flexjobs). That’s an increase of 159% over 12 years.
Working from home is no longer a “nice to have” for job candidates and employees—it’s a perk that workers are starting to demand. Remote employees tend to be more productive, healthy and less stressed, but there are some considerations to keep in mind as you transition your workforce to a WFH environment.
What should a remote work agreement include?
The most common parameters to include in a work from home agreement include:
- Days and times the employee is expected to work in the office
- Types of acceptable communications when working from home
- Equipment and supplies the company will provide
- Data security requirements when working from home
A work-from-home policy ensures that both employer and employee are on the same page and understand expectations. It should be straightforward, uncomplicated, and easy for both parties to understand. To get started, download our template today!
