Creating or Revising Work from Home Policies
Diane Pape Reed, HR Doc
For years, staff members have been asking for permission to work from home. Many employers were hesitant to allow this practice because it seemed hard to manage (e.g., productivity would decrease, it’s too difficult to maintain security and privacy, staff will get by with lax standards, and control would be lost.) But along came COVID-19. Many businesses were forced to close to all but essential personnel in order to protect their own and the public’s health and safety.
What now? Will things go back to normal with everyone returning to the office? Probably not. Many people like (or need) to work from home. In addition, many consumers have changed the way they do business with financial institutions, perhaps forever. They’re using all those online or phone services you’ve been touting, and they like it. Plus, productivity is up, and savings on HR and facilities costs are being realized. Yet, valid concerns still exist. This webinar will take you on an HR guru-guided journey through the standards and best practices of managing work-from-home. Learn how to set standards and maintain strict confidentiality and get great ideas for improving staff morale and enhancing your brand.

Work from Home Record Retention Rules
Nancy Flynn, The ePolicy Institute™
Have you updated your record retention policy and procedures for work-from-home employees? Thanks to COVID-19, best practices and good management call for an updated policy governing remote use and retention of records via personal devices, sites, and accounts. With so many working remotely, mismanaged, misplaced, or missing records are more than a nuisance – they are a liability that could trigger litigation and regulatory fines!
Financial institutions are required to preserve, protect, produce, and purge records, including PII, NPI, and other business-critical information in compliance with GLBA, federal laws, state data breach notification laws, and e-discovery guidelines. Join us to learn best practices-based strategies for effective work-from-home record management. The sample policy and guidelines will help your institution manage records, minimize risks, and maximize compliance.
