The Remote Working Charter
By signing the Remote Working Charter, you will be making a public commitment to protect and support the wellbeing of your remote workers.
Why sign the Charter?
The impact of COVID-19 has accelerated the pace of change in the way we work and established a growing need to protect the wellbeing of remote workers.
But where do you start? And how can you tell what will make a genuine, longer-term positive impact on the wellbeing of your remote workers? The Remote Working Charter has been created to guide you.
By signing your organisation up to the Charter, you’re declaring publicly that the wellbeing of remote workers is a priority for you and will join numerous other forward-thinking employers to have already done so.
The Eight Standards
These standards are underpinned by our extensive research and have been agreed in consultation with remote working experts in the fields of psychology, wellbeing and HR.
