Yes

A brief description of the program:

Dalhousie offers a number of programs that promotes travel avoidance as a key strategy in Transportation Demand Management including: compressed work week, flex-time, alternate scheduling, job sharing, and tele-working policy.

Dalhousie recognizes the opportunities and challenges that teleworking can  present. Telework policies  respond to:  
-improving and supporting employee motivation, productivity, recruitment,  and  well‐being;  
- growing  pressure on office space;
-the flexibility of technology; and    
-environmental and social impacts of travel to and from the office.    
 
This Policy sets out the framework within which Dalhousie administers non-faculty employee requests to  telework.
