Teleworking. Work-from-home. Telecommuting. These all refer to the trend of remote work. But what are the benefits of remote work? What are the possible concerns? How does one create a work-from-home program?
According to a Risk Simplified article by PRISM’s Sarah Bruno, “In order to have a successful [remote work] program in place, leadership should implement a comprehensive policy which establishes clear expectations, requirements, and work arrangements – for both supervisors and staff.”
