The remote work candidate must register for the remote work computer-based training (CBT) in TraCorp. The training is offered academy-style in four subject-specific courses that run 10-12 minutes each:
TRP1001 Telework Basics: this course covers basic information the employee will need to complete the remote work agreement
TRP1002 Communications: this course covers best practices for communications in a remote work environment
TRP1003 Home Office Safety: this course advises employees on setting up and maintaining a safe home office.
TRP1004 Security: this course discusses security issues as they relate to working remotely, including computer security and privacy requirements.
A leadership academy designed for supervisors leading a team with remote workers is under development. Please check back for more information.
Remote Work Agreement
Upon completion of the remote work training, the employee will complete the online remote work agreement (link available in YES) using the Remote Work Agreement Guide. As the employee completes the agreement, he/she will incorporate the specific terms discussed with the supervisor (i.e, scheduled remote work days, the state-authorized equipment the employee will used; any conditions specific to this employee's remote work agreement required by the employing agency or supervisor).
Once the employee has completed and electronically signed the online remote work agreement, the employee will submit the form for review. The system will automatically forward the agreement to the employee’s supervisor and upline manager for review and approval.
Telework agreements must be renewed annually. The system will send an email reminder automatically two weeks before the renewal is due. Per the remote work program policy, an agency may terminate a remote work agreement at its discretion.
Please note: only employees working in Arizona may complete the remote work agreement. A separate process is under development for employees who may be working outside of Arizona long term.
