If you’re telecommuting, trumpet the benefits your employer accrues from your stay-at-home status. Examples:
• Track your office hours. Keep a daily log of how many hours you work, along with the projects you’re tackling. Don’t wait to be asked for this information—volunteer it.
• Build trust. Managers often object to telecommuters because they can’t keep an eye on them. Assuage the boss’s fears by following through and delivering on your promises without being nagged.
• Initiate contact. Aside from attending regularly scheduled meetings in the office, make surprise drop-in visits. This extra “face time” reassures colleagues that you’re still a team player.
