Sample Policies and Guidance

These resources include direction on creating a telework policy for your organization.

This step-by-step guide provides documents relevant to each stage of the process. You will need:

Program oversight

Program oversight, including top level management support, a telework program coordinator, and internal resources for technical assistance and training.

A written policy

A written policy that states organizational goals for the program (i.e., frequency of telework, employee satisfaction, and reduced office expenses), objective requirements for employee participation, and measurable evaluation methods for goals and employees.

Transparent evaluation

Evaluation of each employee’s responsibilities and temperament to see if they qualify for telework as defined in the written agreement.

Required training

Training for both managers and employees on the technical and personal aspects of facilitating telework.

Regular program review and adjustment
