Telework During COVID-19

Where possible, the CDC continues to encourage businesses to allow their employees to telework. Whether you plan to continue telework as a regular business practice or simply establish it as a business continuity plan going forward, we have resources to help.

Teleworker Tips

  • Communicate regularly with your team
  • Keep a routine and stick to your regular work hours, if you can, to still keep that separation of work and home time
  • Stay active by completing a home workout or taking a walk during the day
  • Have a plan but be flexible with it – there may be more distractions at home now than usual, and that’s okay!
  • Take breaks to avoid burnout
  • Check in with your employer about getting additional materials (a monitor, wireless mouse, etc.) to make your telework environment more sustainable long-term

Employer Tips

  • Continue to have your employees telework, if possible
  • Invest in technology that facilitates remote collaboration
  • Establish a formal telework program, if you haven’t already
  • Identify and address any issues with your telework program, such as technology shortcomings, to prevent declines in productivity
  • Set clear expectations that are result-oriented
  • Adjust your parking pricing model to allow commuters to pay daily rather than monthly if some of your workforce is teleworking at least some of the time
