Managing the Telecommuting Employee

RECOMMENDATION
Telework sounds simple. Let an employee work from home. Ensure that he or she has a desk, a computer and a working phone line. Ready, set, go; right? But what if the teleworker has an accident in the home office you authorized? Can your company get sued? What about the teleworker’s tax status, workers’ compensation or benefits? Of course, you might also wonder how you supervise a staffer you may never see, for example, someone who lives on the other side of the globe. Setting up employees in home offices is not as straightforward as it sounds. But, fortunately, Michael Amigoni and Sandra Gurvis phone in everything you need to know in this detailed yet comprehensive book. Drawing on their decades of experience managing remote workers, they present savvy advice on how to develop and run a successful telework program. If telecommuting is part of your company’s future (or its present), LetsRead recommends this useful managing guide.
