Negotiation for Remote Work
Registration opens starting February 1st!
This course was designed to prepare you for a successful negotiation with your employer (i.e., boss, manager, supervisor, etc.) regarding your workplace arrangements. By completing the five modules in this course, you will develop a strong bargaining position in your negotiation for remote, or more flexible work arrangements--thus increasing the likelihood of converting your existing job to remote. This self-paced course is designed to supplement the Remote Online Initiative’s Certified Remote Work Professional online course, but is not a perquisite to enrolling. However, it is highly recommended if your existing job is compatible with remote work. The Negotiation for Remote Work course will take approximately 2-3 hours to complete.
Module 1: Introduction
Overview of the course, its objectives, and your role as both a student and a negotiator.

Module 4: Will remote work stick?
Learn why remote work is here to stay and why there has never been a more favorable time to negotiate for more flexibility with your employer.
Module 5: Conclusion
In this module, we will review key learnings from the course and identify next steps in negotiating your remote work arrangements.
