Making plans for how to work during a possible H1N1 epidemic on campus? Thinking about how to reduce your car’s carbon emissions a day or two a week? Or maybe you’ve been asked to work from home to enhance efficiency or office space use. This year, more than ever, there are good reasons to telecommute to work. According to NC State’s Human Resources, “Fulltime or part-time employees with probationary, permanent, trainee or time-limited appointments are eligible to telework with supervisory approval.”
OIT offers a number of tools and tips that can help eligible staff and faculty work productively from home or elsewhere. Visit OIT’s Telecommuting Tools and Tips to find out more.
