Offsite work and education is an increasingly common and effective option for many people to maintain a healthy balance of work and life. Some work offsite full time while others telecommute as little as a day a month.

From OHSU's teleworking policy: OHSU recognizes teleworking as a work arrangement that may be used to enhance productivity, recruit and retain a diverse and talented workforce, reduce costs, and address traffic congestion, parking constrictions and broader environmental interests.

Equipment needs vary according to the work being performed. Essential equipment typically includes internet service, a computer, phone and software that meet IT requirements.

Additional equipment may include furniture, a headset, additional monitors and office stationary. 

Work spaces outside the home

The Portland region has countless places that can provide a productive work space, provided the environment, internet and cellular access and equipment comply with OHSU and department policies.
