Telework in the Time of COVID-19

Organizations around the region are having to adapt to social distancing in the workplace because of COVID-19. Although there might be some urgency in allowing employees to work from home, it is prudent to develop a policy or guidelines that clearly identify the parameters for teleworking and helps your company feel confident about employees working remotely.

In addition to social distancing, employers and employees are seeing value in using teleworking to retain and recruit their workforce and to manage long commutes daily.

Our three-part webinar series offers practical guidance on how companies can maximize productivity and decrease employee stress in response to COVID-19. You can view the webinars below.
