Remote work policy guidelines released
Human Capital Services announces the launch of the remote work website. Employees and leaders will find a wealth of information related to exploring and establishing remote work arrangements at K-State, including a comprehensive decision-making guide for leaders, resources and guidance for employees and supervisors, FAQ, forms and the new policy.
We encourage anyone interested in remote work arrangements to explore the website and become familiar with the content that is available. As remote work and partially remote work — also called "hybrid" — practices have become mainstream due to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work is now more fully integrated into the university's long-term workforce approach. At K-State, some roles and functions will always require physical presence and standard hours, but many others may be able to use remote work principles and practices to work together efficiently and effectively within their teams to meet the university's academic and business objectives.
HCS will offer virtual training sessions for supervisors, managers and department heads to understand how to navigate the approval process and managing remote work. These training sessions will take place:
- July 14 from 4-5 p.m.
- July 16 from 8:30-9:30 a.m.
- July 19 from 2-3 p.m.
Registration for the training sessions is required. In addition, Qualtrics training for all employees will be available on the website soon. Employee training will include a general overview of the remote work policy, the process for establishing remote work arrangements and supporting resources.
