New telecommuting resources site 

The Department of Human Resources has launched a new site with information and resources for employees who have started telecommuting as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The site provides information on tools, health and wellness, and learning employees can do from home. It also has a section for supervisors and managers about managing employees remotely. 

Employees are encouraged to talk to their supervisor if they would like to engage in lengthy trainings during work time. Supervisors are encouraged to be flexible and allow employees to attend online training if their workload allows. The trainings on the new website are free or low cost.  Supervisors should be familiar with the process for approving training and any associated costs within their departments and divisions. 

View the telecommuting resources site and learn more about working from home, and staying connected and engaged.
