Creating A Respectful Remote Workplace
Telecommuting, also called remote working, has been around for decades. During the global pandemic, the work-from-home trend surged and is likely to stay around in some form. While a flexible work policy has many benefits, it also poses challenges to organizations to keep employees connected and engaged and to ensure they understand that policies, laws, and behavior expectations apply in the remote workplace.
The casual feel of a home office can lead people to say or do things on email, chat, or video conferencing that they wouldn’t in the physical workplace. Some people may actually be more prone to harassing behaviors when they can hide behind a computer and aren’t face-to-face with coworkers.
Training for the remote workplace is an important way to foster a safe, respectful, and harassment-free work culture for all employees — whether they are virtual, onsite, or in a hybrid work environment.

This brief course focuses on keeping the remote workplace safe, respectful and productive and is available in two versions, for employees (10-min) and managers (15 min).
