How Can Businesses Prepare for Coronavirus? Get Ready to Telecommute.March 18, 20201 min read
With the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning of coronavirus outbreaks in America, businesses will be looking for ways to maintain productivity and a healthy work force. Telecommuting will be one of the best options for companies to explore, according to Timothy Golden, a professor in the Lally School of Management at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Golden is available to discuss what steps businesses should take – and which common errors they should avoid – to successfully implement telecommuting policies
“Businesses will need to prepare for their employees to work remotely as a telecommuter. They will need to know how to do this, what are best practices, how to avoid pitfalls among many other considerations,” Golden said.
Golden is a leading expert in the field of telecommuting, telework, and the relationship between technology and managerial behavior. His most recent article on telecommuting was just published in the Journal of Vocational Behavior.
