Letters for Remote Workers
Hi New Remote Employee name,
Congratulations! This is your first letter as an official company name team member. We are thrilled to be working with you (remotely) and wanted to reach out with expectations company name has for remote employees. We thank you again for accepting our offer to join this mighty team of ours and we hope the chance to work with us is as exciting for you, too.
To make both of our jobs easier:
Work hours and availability: Clock in at start time and clock out at end time. Since your workspace is most likely your home, it’s easy to adopt an “always on” mentality. We encourage our remote workers to keep work within work hours to alleviate stress.
Equipment: All necessary tools, softwares, furniture, etc will be provided by company name and only to be used by company name employees. Company name will cover repair costs for damaged equipment.
Workspace: Employees must designate a safe workspace, free of hazards to the employee and company equipment. The designated workspace must include strong access to internet.
Communication: Remote employees must be available for calls and emails within regular office hours. Employees are expected to attend all applicable client calls and meetings deemed by management.
Evaluation: Remote employees must participate in reports, studies, inquiries and analyses conducted by company name.
Note to the Recruiter: Make all communication guidelines clear and keep a document available to all employees for reference. This is especially helpful for remote employees new to the company while they begin grasping new communication policies.
If you have any further questions or are in need of additional tools to help you perform your job better in location of new hire, please consider me as your point of contact for these concerns.
Again, we are very happy to have you as a part of the team and look forward to many victories together!
