Teleworking: A Strategy for Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Response

In the event of any emergency situation or disaster with a potentially negative impact on employee commutes, teleworking can allow businesses to operate on a normal schedule. Having a proven telework plan prior to the emergency is key to successful business continuity throughout its duration. The author provides steps for teleworking pilot program implementation: securing management support; determining which employees would be able to work remotely; locating alternative work facilities; determining equipment and resource needs; ensuring remote access to needed office files; training both employees and managers in telework procedures; and establishing a teleworking pilot program and then monitoring results.
