We know that any remote work right now is likely being made more complex due to COVID-19. In this time of heightened stress, anxiety, and fear we’ve teamed up with Running Remote to bring to life Remote AID 2020 this 20th of April.
It’s a one-day, free, online event which will help you better address emergency work-from-home situations. Join remote work experts that will take you through the most important areas of managing your distributed teams. Today remote work is no longer a perk, it is a necessity. Once the crisis ends (we promise it will end one day!), remote work will still stay on the rise.
