Remote Work Arrangements (RWAs)

At Memorial we are committed to our people and to fostering a culture of care and well-being; this was identified within the university’s strategic plan, Transforming Our Horizons.

Key to this commitment is supporting each other and ensuring a healthy work environment where employees have the supports they need to thrive, and where the talents and ideas of employees help the university move forward and grow in innovative and responsive ways.

Memorial is pleased to announce that the university has developed Guidelines for Remote Work Arrangements for non-academic employees on all campuses that are effective Aug. 29, 2022, for a one-year period.

For details about the program, please consult the Guidelines for Remote Work document linked below or access the FAQs.  

The application form will be available in the portal by Aug. 15, 2022. Other supporting forms have already been posted in the portal under the section titled "Remote Work."   

The program opens on Aug. 29 when the guidelines come in to effect, however, the start date of remote work arrangements (RWAs) may vary by unit. While considering operating requirements, RWAs will be reviewed by units as time and resources permit.

These guidelines may change over the one-year period as the university refines its remote work approach.

These are guidelines and not a policy. A remote work policy is in development. Feedback and information collected during the one-year period of this program will help inform policy considerations.

Benefits of Remote Work

Memorial anticipates that both the university and employees will benefit from RWAs. The following diagram outlines a number of the potential benefits.
