Working From Home (WFH)
Below are the guides, resources and information you will need to set up an ergonomically safe and productive working environment.
Staff are eligible to purchase one external monitor, keyboard, HDMI cable and mouse to work from home. Staff cannot purchase equipment outside of this, like printers or a docking station.
Please ensure your manager approves before any purchases are made. The maximum you can claim via reimbursement is $220.
How do I purchase the equipment?
You can purchase equipment from any supplier you choose. Please keep all receipts and submit an expense claim through KOFAX, ensuring you use the below cost allocation for ICT hardware:
- Location: 99010P
- Business Unit: EXELT
- Product: ZADMIN
- Portfolio: EXLT
- Division: CEO
- Account Code: 561130
How do I know if the equipment is compatible?
Make sure the monitor has a HDMI input (most modern monitors will have this) and check if the monitor comes with a HDMI cable. All modern keyboards and mouse have a USB connection, which will be compatible with your laptop or desktop computer.
Will I need to return the equipment to work in the future?
You are expected to return all company-owned assets if you leave the organisation, or if your role changes and you no longer require this equipment. Any equipment you have purchased or you have been reimbursed for is yours to keep.
If you have an Endeavour Foundation laptop, please take it home each night and check to ensure your VPN access is set up.
If you do not have an Endeavour Foundation laptop, you can set up Citrix on your own device to access emails and files.
