What if my direct report is struggling while working remotely?

Working remotely is not for everyone. The employee’s work efficiency from home must be continuously monitored by setting expectations for durations for tasks and establishing deadlines for deliverables. Some people are more capable of efficient work while working remotely than others. If a manager finds the quality or efficiency of an employee’s work is declining, one possible remedy may be for the employee to report to the office more often or even full-time. The employee must always meet the eligibility requirements in the Telecommuting and Remote Work policy.
