HomeHR glossaryTelecommuting

Telecommuting also known as remote work or teleworking, refers to a work arrangement in which employees perform their job duties from a location other than the traditional office setting, typically from their own homes or other remote locations. It leverages technology to facilitate communication and collaboration, allowing employees to work effectively while physically separated from their workplace.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations implemented telecommuting policies, enabling employees to carry out their tasks using virtual meeting platforms, email, and cloud-based tools. For instance, a marketing manager might telecommute by creating and implementing marketing strategies, attending virtual meetings, and collaborating with team members, all while working from a home office.
