Stanford University (Stanford) is committed to providing staff flexible work options in line with the operational needs of the university and their department. In appropriate circumstances, Stanford may hire or transition existing staff to work in Remote roles in which the individual’s primary workspace is at a location other than a Stanford location. This guide memo sets forth policies and procedures to facilitate Remote work arrangements for eligible employees in appropriate circumstances. For work arrangements where the employee’s primary work location is at Stanford, see Guide Memo 2.1.20: Hybrid (Telecommuting) Work Arrangements.
Applies to all employees, including regular employees, Academic Staff-Research, Academic Staff-Libraries, and contingent (casual or temporary) employees as defined in Guide Memo 2.2.1: Definitions.
This policy does not apply to:
The workplace culture at Stanford is one that is rooted in collaboration, continuous discourse about planned work and projects underway, and in providing stellar service to our university community. With appropriate use of technology and managerial oversight, staff whose roles allow for all work to be performed at a location that is not a Stanford location may be eligible for a Remote work arrangement. (“Remote” is defined below in section 2).
