A remote work plan that works

By Elizabeth Torphy-Donzella, partner at Shawe Rosenthal, LLP

When it comes to remote work, there is definitely more push from employees for policy that provides flexibility, including telecommuting for some, or even all of the work-week.

The reality is that in most jobs, in-person interaction is really critical for building relationships, clarifying assignment objectives, and developing strategies. My office at Shawe Rosenthal, LLP is very collaborative, we drop in on each other throughout the day to brainstorm.

First and foremost, employees need to understand that a business’ first focus must be its business needs. The personal desires of workers are important, but they and you should not lose sight of the fact that delivering the product or service is the point of it all.

That said, in reality many jobs can be accomplished remotely.
