Purpose: The main goal of the paper is to present specific recommendations and guidelines for managers in charge about how to manage the remote work of public administration officials in selected educational units. Design/Methodology/Approach: Based on extended interviews with principals, and surveys carried out among 30 administrative staff members, a concept of improvements in management of administrative staff working from home during the pandemic has been elaborated. This article also employs the value network analysis developed by Verna Alee, which allows to identify essential value flows in the implementation of remote work. Findings: As a result of the research, a concept of improvements in the management of administrative personnel working remotely was developed. The quantitative and qualitative analysis led to the development of guidelines for the managers of educational units. Practical Implications: The proposed concept shows how to organize remote work, how to motivate and control administrative staff. However, the value network analysis enables its implementation in any kind of educational unit. Originality/Value: This study examines an important issue in remote work arrangements among administrative staff. It is based on quantitative and qualitative analysis, namely a survey method, in-depth interview, and value network approach by Verna Alee.
