What is a working from home policy?
Today we are living in a technology-enabled and ultra-flexible modern world of work. As a result, a thoughtfully considered Work From Home Policy is becoming a must-have at progressive companies.
A Work From Home Policy is an agreement between employer and its employees that clearly defines the expectations, responsibilities and guidelines for employees who work from home. It may also define who is eligible to work from home, the process for requesting work from home privileges, as well as the approval process.
Remote work can not completely replace office based or face to face work. It should instead complement this elevated workplace experience. The key is to create a Work From Home Policy that sets the right expectations and creates channels and infrastructure that not only supports working from home but also mitigates potential problems that arise when employees are out of the office.

Why is free working from home policy sample worth downloading?
Worknice content partners have helped create a comprehensive library of sample templates, policies and contracts.
Our content partners are made up of HR consultants, lawyers, experts and professionals. As a result, they pride themselves on offering quality resources that are freely accessible to the public.
This particular sample working from home policy is a reproduction of a digital ‘smart document’ that is available as part of the Worknice document management solution.
Why are we giving it away for free?
Worknice is a software platform that helps you focus your time and energy on people, rather than process. This downloadable template is a pdf or editable document. So while the content is great, it does not come to life with technology features like automations, workflows, auto-updates, electronic sign-offs, integration and more.
