Working remotely/ from home

UPDATED 12 MARCH 18:45 Employees must follow the advice of the Directorate of Health that those who can, should work from home. To work from home, follow the steps below.

Speak to your superior/ manager to work from home.

  • All employees are requested to bring their computer and necessary office equipment home no later than Friday, March 13 at noon.
  • If you are in quarantine, you cannot come to NIH. Arrange with a colleague to collect and deliver your assets.
    Check that VPN (for remote connection) is working
    Everyone must check that the VPN works and that you get connected to NIH’s systems and servers - and to the intranet (Innersvingen).
    - Set up VPN: Go to Innersvingen> Nyttig > IKT > Veiledninger
  • Check that your mobile number is in place in ESS / DFØ:
    Under your profile, check that your mobile number is entered in the self-service portal (ESS / DFØ). This ensures that NIH can reach you with important information via SMS if needed.
    - Enter mobile number: Innersvingen > DFØ/ESS > Mine opplysninger > Telefon > Legg til telefonnummer
    Download the Sharepoint app - Appstore (Iphone / Ipad) - Google Play (Android)
  • We recommend subscribing to news / turning on push notifications to notify you of updates. The recipe for this can be found at Innersvingen> Infosenter > Jobbe hjemmefra
