Frequently Asked Questions Telework

How do I get my manager to trust me while teleworking?

The key difference between the telework relationship and the in-office relationship is your manager cannot see what you are doing when you are working at home.  It all comes down to trust.  You can take a number of simple steps to earn your manager’s trust by:

  • Doing your best work
  • Completing work assignments on time
  • Pitching in to help when needed (it is important to continue to be a team player even when teleworking)
  • Volunteering for projects
  • Working independently without the need for close supervision
  • Keeping your supervisor and co-workers informed about what you are working on and what you have accomplished
