Working From Home Good Practice Guidelines 

While the sudden transition to work from home due to COVID restrictions came with challenges and pressures for some staff, overall, many in our sector found that being able to work from home was one of the silver linings that emerged from the disruptions.    

Working from home provided greater flexibility and increased provided the opportunity for better work/life balance and more positive lifestyle factors, as well as providing greater flexibility and the technology to connect with students and colleagues.

As we return to our ‘normal’ routine many may want options to continue to work from home or blend both on-campus and at home working arrangements.  

These Working From Home Good Practice Guidelines do not advocate for or against working from home, nor do they explore the practical set up of home offices, but rather they provide some general considerations for ourselves, our leaders, colleagues and teams that can help us decide if a working from home or blended working from home options may be the right fit.  And if so how do we maintain our connections with our colleagues, motivation, engagement and wellbeing during the process.
