The experience of COVID-19 suggested long-term potential for remote work, hybrid work, and other types of work arrangements.

While most staff and faculty return to on-campus work July 1, the university is conducting a pilot project that asks colleges and divisions to identify jobs eligible for remote/hybrid work or alternative schedules, documents and evaluates work arrangements, and recommends changes to policy and practice.

See the Future of Work@Iowa site for background on the project, including high-level recommendations. For info on documenting work arrangements and best practices, see workplace flexibility pages managed by Family Services.

Harvard Business School's Tsedal Neeley suggests supervisors re-launch remote teams by evaluating purpose, resources, constraints, and other factors. Read her advice on leading remotely.
