Does the institution offer a telecommute program for employees?:

A brief description of the program:

The Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA) pilot program within RIT’s Finance & Administration division is an attempt to see how well the FWA concept works for certain staff.

RIT supports flexible work arrangements (FWAs) as a means to facilitate a desirable and productive work environment that is responsive to the changing professional and personal needs of employees in addition to promoting RIT’s sustainability initiatives.
The primary criterion for determining eligibility is whether an FWA meets the business needs of an employee’s workplace. The best arrangement is the one that most effectively addresses the employee's personal needs or preferences and the department's need to provide effective and efficient services. Not all job circumstances lend themselves to FWAs, and the final decision in each case is that of the supervisor. However, supervisors are encouraged to seek alternatives if an employee’s original request cannot be accommodated.
