03/11/2020 -- TMA OFFERS TIPS TO HELP EMPLOYEES WORK-FROM-HOME DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

As COVID-19 continues to change the way people gather for work and pleasure, The Partnership TMA offers the following tips to set up telecommuting programs for employees:

  • establish clear guidelines on what hours the employee should be available for calls, video meetings
  • determine if using personal home computer is sufficient or whether a work-only laptop is needed
  • identify an area of the home that is conducive for focused work (i.e. low foot traffic, no television)
  • explain whether allowances will be given for Internet, cell phone, printing costs
  • maintain regular check-ins to ensure the arrangement is working as planned

The Partnership TMA offers its members expert advice on setting up telecommuting policies.  For more information, please contact us at 215-997-9100 or click on READ MORE.
