Remote Work Round-Up
Jan. 18th 2018
For the first time in a long time, it's not just the East coast workforce looking for a glorified snow day. States such as Texas, Louisiana, and Tennessee are bundling up for a long, snowy commute - and it's no surprise that many of these states are ill equipped for handling snow removal making the drive more dangerous than ever.
So what's an employee to do? Our recommendation - talk to the powers-that-be about implementing a flexible work schedule. While no one could have anticipated these storms, they are a perfect segue into a work-from-home discussion with your boss or an HR Manager. In an article written by Courtney Connley, she provides five tips on negotiating a work-from-home schedule that include:
- Evaluating the Demands of your position
- Checking in with your HR Department
- Drafting a Proposal
- Planing for a Trial Period
- Presenting your idea
Whether your company agrees to a flexible policy solely during inclement weather, or allows you to work-from-home permanently, it's no surprise that full time employees working remotely is on the rise. Studies have shown that companies that offer job flexibility, such as working from home, have happier and more productive employees over traditional ones.

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
Living in the midst of a pandemic has brought about a whole host of changes and challenges for workplaces and employees. One of the most notable? Virtual interviewing. With most on-site interviews on hold for the foreseeable future, it's important that you be prepared to make a great first impression—virtually.
