COVID-19 & Flexible Work Arrangements

Flexible work arrangements and teleworking are excellent ways to keep you and your employees healthy during these uncertain times. We know many of you have had to start your teleworking program without the luxury of time, but these resources may help streamline your process as we move through this time together as a community. As restrictions begin to lift, it will be important to have a clear sense of where your worksite stands on remote work moving into the future.

Downtown On the Go has created a simple how-to guide for creating or updating your worksite’s teleworking policy. It walks you through topics and questions to consider to ensure that your policy best serves your worksite and staff. Access the guide here:
