A Guide To Creating A Work-From Home Policy

  1. 1. A GUIDE TO CREATING A WORK-FROM-HOME POLICY 1. PLAN FOR IT • What kinds of employees could successfully work remotely? • Will these employees be 100% remote, or will there be additional in-office requirements? • How will you structure your teams? Your communications? Your performance management? • How will you hold people accountable for their time, work and results? 2. HIRE FOR IT • Look for people who have worked remotely in the past. If they’re applying for another remote position, chances are it’s something they like to do. • Talk to candidates with demonstrated success taking initiative, working independently, and managing their own time. • Keep an eye out for candidates who describe themselves as being disciplined, self-motivated and tech savvy. Excellent communication and responsiveness are also key. CONCLUSION If you’re thinking about offering your employees the option to do their jobs off-site, why not do a little research and put together a plan? You may be surprised at just how well remote works. 3. MAKE IT OPTIONAL • Workers who choose to work remotely are productive and engaged. Those who are forced into it are less successful. • Give on-site workers the opportunity to work from home for special circumstances or on a trial basis. 50% OF THE U.S. WORKFORCE holds a job that is compatible with at least partial remote work.
