As the workforce becomes more diversified and employers struggle to cope with the demands of a rapidly changing marketplace, these arrangements are becoming more popular and more common.
The main objective of this course is to provide you with the information you need to successfully perform while telecommuting and in other alternative work arrangements, and to make the most of what they have to offer you and the organization.
- Properly set up, alternative work arrangements can benefit both employees and employers.
- Not all jobs or all employees are suitable for alternative work arrangements.
- Objectives, expectations, and timetables must be clearly understood, and effective channels of communication must be maintained.
- Be alert to potential problems and work with your supervisor to solve them quickly and effectively.
