You might think that the clue is in the title, but there is a little more to it than meets the eye.
Home working literally means that you do your work from the comfort of your home, but this doesn’t have to mean you do your work from home all of the time. For instance, you might work from home for part of the time and then work from the office for the rest of the working week. You might flexibly choose to work from home, i.e. only when your situation calls for it, perhaps if your child is sick, as one example, or when you feel you would be more productive by choosing to stay home and do your work.
Your employer needs to be in agreement with your request to work from home. You would do this via a flexible working request. The way this is done depends upon your business and their specific policies and procedures, but overall this needs to be requested in writing, outlining what you’re asking for (i.e. you want to work from home all or part of the time), why you want this flexible working arrangement, how it will benefit you, and also how it will benefit the company. When making an arrangement, you’re far more likely to get a ‘yes’ if you can make a great argument for how it will benefit the business, its productivity and its profitability at the end of the day.
Your employer will then consider your request, and this is something they have to do, keeping you informed throughout the process. This has to be done within a set amount of time, and the specific amount will be contained within your specific policy related to home working or flexible working. You will then be given a decision in writing, and if it’s a ‘no’, they have to tell you why. You’re usually allowed to appeal, but that’s a personal decision for you to make.
This procedure is the same for any flexible working arrangement, be it remote working, changing your hours from full time to part time, part time to full time, job sharing, flex-time, etc.
The general rise of flexible working has been quite rapid, but it’s a welcome change for many.
