The COVID-19 pandemic has forced much of the country’s workforce into telecommuting arrangements. With the need for social distancing, the ability to continue essential business functions through effective remote work arrangements is a key means for addressing the global health crisis. This talk provides an overview of academic research on telecommuting as well as best practice recommendations for those implementing and managing telecommuting programs.
