Homeworking - What You Need to Consider
For people who are self-motivated, comfortable spending long-periods of time by themselves and who can separate their work and home lives, homeworking can be an ideal option and it is no surprise that it is on the rise in the UK, particularly amongst women.
Allowing employees to work from home can also be an attractive prospect for some businesses; a wider geographical spread of staff and associated cost savings are just two reasons why employers are actively encouraging homeworking in certain sectors.
During this session Paul Roy of Law Hound will discuss some of the practical aspects involved in working from home including:
· Whether the job and the person are suitable for homeworking – does the role require team working
· Equipment – installation in the home, cost, maintenance
· Access to data / information
· Health and safety
· Managing the employee – does the individual require face-to-face supervision, how will performance be measured, will this be consistent with office-based staff
· Formalising homeworking
Regardless of whether employees wish to work from home on an occasional or regular basis, it is crucial that your business has a work from home policy in place first. Aimed at managers and business owners, this webinar will offer guidance on what you need to consider and include when drafting your own firm’s homeworking policy.
