When Working From home - Opening Keynote



Beth Bravermann in her CNN.com article "Work from home and still be a part of the office" writes:

"Love your commute-free workday away from the glare of fluorescent lights? Just don't get too comfortable. A recent study in the MIT Sloan Management Review found that bosses are more likely to attribute traits like 'responsible' and 'dependable' to in-office workers than those who work from home."

"If you're among the 13 million U.S. employees who work remotely at least once a week, try these moves to seem as present as those who appear in the office every day: Communicate constantly. Return calls as well as emails ASAP and make it easier for people to reach you by forwarding your office phone to a dedicated home-office line."

"When you have to be out, make sure colleagues know in advance, and put an automatic reply on your email that says when you'll be reachable again."
