Background info: I currently work on site (database developer) but will be moving to another state in a month. My boss has given me the okay to work remotely. I'll be the first remote worker in my office, and I've never worked remotely before. I've been in my position for a year, and this is my first job out of college.
We are working on getting all the equipment I need. I'm more concerned about setting up expectations. What do I need to discuss with my boss before moving to make the transition as smooth as possible and alleviate any concerns he may have?
Here's what I've come up with so far:
- Communication expectations
- Working hours and availability
- Travel expectations
- Reimbursement for business expenses
- Time frame for reviewing the remote arrangement to make sure it's working out for me and him.
