Does the institution offer a tele-commute program for employees?:

A brief description of the program:

Telecommuting/Teleworking is working from a remote office location (usually from home) one or more days per week or month. Telecommuters should be as accessible to the college while telecommuting as they would be if they were in an office on campus.

At Agnes Scott College limited telecommute options may be available for employees in some offices of 1 day per month – the office may determine the schedule based on the workload and duties for the individual and the office.

This program would be “project” oriented and would require the manager and employee to pre-arrange the agreed upon work and number of days allowed. Employees whose jobs enable more frequent teleworking may do so a few days a month.

Certain target positions may use teleworking as a strategic long-term solution or as an answer to limited office space. All teleworking MUST be evaluated by Information Technology Services to determine viability prior to implementation of a telecommuting schedule. Of particular concern is security of the individual’s home computer as well as configuration of their office computer to enable remote connectivity.
