Teleworking Guidelines for All Remote Workers

Kent State's commitment to safely and effectively meet the public health challenge presented by COVID-19 means most university employees are now working from home and will continue to do so in the weeks ahead.

Thrust into a work from home situation, many employees quickly learn that working remotely may not be what they expected, and that it requires specific skills and habits. The Employee Wellness Team has had numerous requests to assist in this regard and have considered important factors that not only help to make us more productive in this situation, but also considerations for supporting the remote workers’ ongoing health and wellbeing.

To assist you with setting up and maintaining your best workspace, the Wellness Team has developed guidelines to provide all Kent State employees with the necessary information, resources and tips needed to successfully manage working remotely while managing your health, wellbeing, and other priorities. Some of the information you will find within these Guidelines for Remote Workers include:

  • Setting up your workspace
  • Creating your routine
  • Prioritizing your health and wellness, and
  • Being a productive team member

We believe these resources will provide the guidance necessary for supervisors, employees and departments as you adjust to your temporary remote work arrangements quickly and successfully in the coming weeks. Please feel free to contact our Employee Wellness team with questions at We are here and will continue to provide you with our ongoing support.
