Many of our clients are still working remotely. While all employees have received our Contingent Employee Teleworking/Telecommuting Policy and Procedures, below are some reminders:
- All company policies, as outlined in the JURISolutions Contingent Employee Handbook, apply to employees in teleworking positions.
- Equipment supplied by the organization is to be used for business purposes only.
- Employees are expected to ensure the protection of proprietary company and customer information accessible from their home offices.
- Employees are expected to communicate regularly with their supervisors and recruiters.
All employees have also received the JURISolutions’ Teleworking/Telecommuting Best Practices Guide. Below are some of our tips to ensure teleworking/telecommuting success:
- Take short breaks
- Short breaks to move your body or get some fresh air help prevent you from running out of steam.
- Establish your space
- Setting aside an area as your designated workspace will help you instinctively slip into work mode.
- Set boundaries
- Set clear boundaries with the people in your household while you are working and stick to them.
- Dress for the day
- Getting dressed and performing your usual self-care routine can be a psychological booster that ultimately betters your work performance.
