Working from Home Tips
Despite the pandemic over the past couple years, working from home was already becoming a much more normal concept in the professional world. But when individuals of all stripes found themselves forced into a remote structure, they quickly discovered some difficulties. Distractions differed from those in the office. Meetings became less efficient. Isolation caused workers to feel alone and depressed. However, many remote workers discovered new ways for dealing with the issues of working from home. And even in a post-pandemic world, they’ve proven extremely helpful. This course takes learners through both technical and non-technical means of making remote work more enjoyable and efficient.
