As Coronavirus pandemic cases have surged, so have the number of companies around the globe asking their employees to work from home! 46% of American businesses have implemented remote-work policies as of mid-February.
As backed by the latest technology news, while telecommuting has become more mainstream in recent years—the remote workforce grew 159% between 2005 and 2017—when just 3.4% of Americans work from home at least half of the time, it’s not unreasonable to think that many of the employees who have been asked to work from home due to the coronavirus pandemic may have little to no experience doing so, or at least not for an extended period.
And it’s realistic to assume that shifting to the ‘home office’ will become the new normal for many of us for a while, given Wednesday’s (11th March 2020) announcement by the World Health Organization that the coronavirus has officially reached ‘pandemic’ status. Worry not! We have gathered some amazing tips that can help you work from home productively and with ease.
