Brock University: Work-From-Home Guideline extended until December

Last summer, Brock University launched a temporary Work-From-Home Guideline with plans to continue it until at least the end of this month.

While work continues to finalize a new Flexible Work Arrangement Policy that will replace the Work-From-Home Guideline, the guideline will be extended for one additional term, until December 2022.

As part of the guideline, work-from-home arrangements are to be reviewed and renewed each term. Employees interested in working from home on a part- or full-time basis for the Fall Term are encouraged to review the guideline, discuss their proposed work-from-home arrangement with their supervisor and then complete the Work-From-Home request process on Workday.

The Work-From-Home Guideline may not be suitable or possible for all positions and does not apply to employees represented by BUFA, CUPE 1295, CUPE 4207-1 or CUPE 4207-3.

Over the past year, the University has gathered feedback from the Brock community and surveyed employees and managers to help inform a new Flexible Work Arrangement Policy that will include work-from-home and other more permanent flexible work arrangements that recognize the changing nature of work, generate higher job satisfaction, create better access, improve productivity and aid in recruitment and retention efforts to ensure Brock remains an employer of choice in the Niagara region.

The new policy, along with resources to help employees and those who manage or lead people to understand and communicate the policy, will be finalized over the next few months, with implementation expected in January 2023.
