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.
