Telework

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. Even employees who are onsite full time are highly likely to work with colleagues who are offsite.

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. 

Getting started

Current employees should visit the Technology for Telework Resource Page and follow the guide for employees and managers.

Equipment

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. 

Staying engaged

You can interact with the OHSU community and stay up to date on your workplace through Now.OHSU.edu
