Did you know there is already an easy way for you to track Remote Workers in PeopleSoft HR?

Working from home is already a reality for 1 in 2 employees in the U.S. and many more around the world.  According to this Josh Bersin’s article, studies reveal that up to 40% of Americans will likely have some remote working as a regular part of their jobs in the future.  In HR, we are responsible for collaborating with managers to:

  • track the location of our employees while remote working

  • equip them with what they need to be productive

  • ensure they are following the appropriate work protocols even from home


Organizations are starting to put together remote worker programs that address the tools, expectations, and policies that should be followed.

At a minimum, organizations will need to track some basic information about their remote worker employee population.  This is where the PeopleSoft Teleworker feature can help.  It is a module that is part of your normal PeopleSoft HR license and does not require any additional implementation.


You may use the PeopleSoft Teleworker feature to do the following:

  • capture the start date and end date of when employees will be remote working

  • track part-time remote working, including the number of days per week and average days per month

  • capture an employee's actual remote work location and address.  Multiple locations may be tracked if necessary.

  • identify if remote working is as a result of a temporary or permanent disability

  • capture any formal remote work agreement in place between the organization, manager, and employee

  • define specific job codes, positions, and/or locations that qualify for remote working


PeopleSoft also allows for tracking remote worker status by job, in the event an employee with multiple jobs qualifies to remote work in one job but not the other(s).

We are looking to get feedback from our customers to identify how we can enhance the PeopleSoft Teleworker functionality.  If you are interested in helping, you can reach out directly to me at robbin.velayedam@oracle.com or enter your ideas on our Ideas Space.
