Employer considerations one should think of when working from home

With ongoing uncertainty in the workplace more and more people are choosing or being advised to work remotely.  Employers have a duty of care to all employees and must ensure that their home working environment complies with all the same Health & Safety Regulations as office based employees.

To ensure employee welfare and continued productivity Digicom have engaged with a number of our clients to see how we can assist in this area.

Our discussions have highlighted a number of shortfalls in the home working environment.  These can range from space restrictions, inability to access company documents, background noise & IT issues.  It’s important to remember here that there is not a “One Size Fits All” solution.

Digicom were recently engaged by a multinational insurance company to provide “Work from Home Bundles” to keep their remote workforce healthy, engaged and productive.  All employees were given a list of items deemed appropriate and asked to choose what they needed.  Items ranging from foldable desks, lumbar supports to headsets were among those listed.

As a result all the employees now not only feel valued but their home working environment mirrors that of the office.
