The last couple of years has seen a huge increase in the number of staff working from home.

For some, it has been a blessing; flexibility, no commute, no distractions. For others, it has been a headache: managing the employment relationship at a distance, monitoring productivity, learning how to use Zoom, and balancing working from home with working on the kids’ homework!

Whichever bracket you fall within, there is an increased expectation on the part of churches and Christian organisations, and those who work for them, to consider working from home as a viable option.

To help our clients struggling with this issue, we have produced a comprehensive Homeworking/Hybrid Working Policy. It covers a number of issues that need to be considered when permitting staff to work from home (or some other location), including:

  • Data Protection issues, such as steps to reduce the risk of data breaches
  • Confidentiality, such as the implications of smart speakers
  • Health and Safety, such as the need for risk assessments and ensuring good mental and physical health for those working remotely
  • Expenses, such as calculating travel expenses for those based at home
  • Things to consider before agreeing homeworking.

You can purchase the pack here.
