  • Set up technology: Ensure that employees have the necessary information technology and equipment to work remotely, including a computer, internet access, and access to company systems and files.

  • Train employees: Train employees on how to effectively work remotely, including how to use technology, manage their time, and stay connected with colleagues.

  • Communicate regularly: Communicate regularly with employees to ensure that they have the support and resources they need to work effectively and to address any issues that arise.

  • Evaluate and adjust: Evaluate the effectiveness of the teleworking policy and make adjustments as needed to ensure that it is meeting the needs of employees and the business.
