The telework policy will help to create standards for teleworking employees. Teleworking is a work alternative that can increase employee productivity, reduce absenteeism, and reduce costs, while offering a more flexible work option for select employees. However, if not properly managed, teleworking can cause a number of problems. The teleworking policy is key to creating the required standards to allow for employee teleworking.
Risks Addressed by Policy:
- Network security breach.
- Facing liability issues due to unsafe secondary work site locations.
- Reduced productivity due to unproductive teleworkers.
