Well, here we go again! This time of year is the time where we get the “end of the world” storms where the bread and milk aisle are bare and so are the streets.
As I plan my day tomorrow, I look at this as a great day to work from home for part of it, and take the mass transit for the other part of it.
For those unaware, the Route 50 bus is one of the great connectors between Saratoga and Schenectady. You can check out the route here. $1.50 each way beats driving in the foul weather!
In positions where work can be done from home, it’s always better to err on the side of safety. With telecommuting becoming such an easy option, no operation can do without a sound telecommuting plan for inclement weather.
A smart HR team will put together an action plan around how to handle absences/working from home on days like tomorrow, and work to keep the business rolling without playing favorites or risking injury.
