My boss and I have decided that I should work from home one day a week to reduce the monstrous carbon footprint I leave from living approximately 40 miles from my office. (It didn’t used to be so far, but the office moved. Booo.)
She’s tasked me with putting together process documents for this venture so that we have a guideline to follow as we would like other salaried employees to be allowed to work from home in the future.
So far I have the following:
[li]Reliable PC with high speed internet access[/li][li]Microsoft Office 2007[/li][li]Land Line telephone connection[/li][li]Printer[/li][li]AOL Instant Messenger (This is what my company uses to communicate over IM)[/li][/ul]
[li]Employee must send IM to manager at assigned start time and be available via IM throughout the day[/li][li]As we often receive high priority requests which require immediate follow up, employee should notify Manager if they will be away from PC to ensure that someone in the dept is always keeping an eye on incoming email[/li][li]In the event of a computer malfunction or the internet or land line going down, employee must report to office[/li][/ul]
Can you think of anything obvious that I’m leaving out? I’m sure there’s more.
