Description:

Telecommuting may be seen as a perk for employees and a useful option that employers like because it can increase the retention and attraction of top talent. But what are the pros and cons for employers? One of the pioneers of telecommuting, IBM, recently decided to “co-locate” some of its departments to encourage collaboration and innovation. Predictably, some employees who were used to being off-site were not happy.

Some studies have indicated that telecommuting can have a positive effect on employees and ultimately employers. Many companies have reported increased employee morale, productivity, and retention. But there are downsides as well, including distrust and jealousy among coworkers who have to be on-site, as well as security and pay issues.

Also, if you’re thinking of cutting back or eliminating your telecommuting program, there can be issues with ADA compliance. Employers may be required by law to allow telecommuting in certain cases.

Join us for a webinar to learn the pros and cons of implementing a telecommuting program, or rolling back one. An HR expert and a seasoned employment attorney will provide insight and tips on what you can expect, and what policies you need to have in place.

You’ll learn:

  • Why some organizations like IBM have been pulling back on telecommuting recently
  • Answers to questions such as:
  • Is there a link between retention and the flexibility of telecommuting?
  • Which types of workers should generally be considered as candidates for working remotely and which shouldn’t?
  • How do you know if your telecommuters are actually working effectively?
  • The case for “agile teams” and collaboration when rolling back telecommuting—and whether telecommuting rollbacks may lead to massive employee unhappiness and/or departures
  • How to attract and retain talent if you’re in a second-tier city and want employees to work on-site
  • How to tell if telecommuters are less engaged than on-site workers
  • Examples of organizations where telecommuting is going strong
  • What constitutes a disability that may merit telecommuting as an ADA accommodation
  • Additional legal issues relating to telecommuting you should be aware of
  • How to record hours worked for nonexempt telecommuters
  • Whether you may pay telecommuters less than in-house staff
  • Key issues concerning workers’ compensation
  • Telecommuting agreement essentials
  • How to effectively address telecommuting in your company’s employee handbook
  • How to evaluate job duties to determine whether on-site attendance is an essential function of the job
  • The hidden costs of telecommuting
  • How to get the best performance out of telecommuters
  • How evaluating performance and work quality may differ with a telecommuting employee from an in-house worker
  • Telecommuter discipline and termination best practices

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
