Remote work is a voluntary work arrangement that enables an employee to work off-site for all or part of the workweek on a regular basis, as a management option rather than an employee right. NIU has a Remote Work Policy because the university recognizes that, where feasible and appropriate, offering the option to work off-site can benefit individual employees and the university.
The university has created this tool to help supervisors/managers and employees explore feasibility and develop shared expectations for remote working arrangements. The questions posed are meant to guide discussion, and its use is optional.
Does the employee possess/demonstrate the following attributes necessary for a successful remote working arrangement?
