Remote Work Round-Up

For the first time in a long time, it's not just the East coast workforce looking for a glorified snow day. States such as Texas, Louisiana, and Tennessee are bundling up for a long, snowy commute - and it's no surprise that many of these states are ill equipped for handling snow removal making the drive more dangerous than ever.

So what's an employee to do? Our recommendation - talk to the powers-that-be about implementing a flexible work schedule. While no one could have anticipated these storms, they are a perfect segue into a work-from-home discussion with your boss or an HR Manager. In an article written by Courtney Connley, she provides five tips on negotiating a work-from-home schedule that include:

  1. Evaluating the Demands of your position
  2. Checking in with your HR Department
  3. Drafting a Proposal
  4. Planing for a Trial Period
  5. Presenting your idea

Whether your company agrees to a flexible policy solely during inclement weather, or allows you to work-from-home permanently, it's no surprise that full time employees working remotely is on the rise. Studies have shown that companies that offer job flexibility, such as working from home, have happier and more productive employees over traditional ones.
