Good morning all,
We are getting increasing numbers of staff wishing to 'work from home' for reasons varying from lack of child care to building works being undertaken at the home.
In the past we have allowed staff to work from home when they are on a tight deadline for a project or perhaps needs to concentrate free of distractions. However, the requests seem to be coming in more frequently and from less senior staff.
There is no policy in place as this has always been down to the line managers discretion, problem is that some encourage it, some dont like saying no and some have staff where this just isn't a possibilty due to the job role.
Can anyone offer any advice on how to deal with this?
