Not sure if you remember, but around this time last year we were celebrating the world’s first-ever Global Work From Home Day. More than 140 companies with over 20 000 employees worldwide joined us to spread awareness about flexible work and its benefits.
Fast forward to April this year, and it seems like every day is a Global Work From Home Day now! A bit ironic, isn’t it?
To keep up this beautiful April tradition of celebrating work from home, we decided to update and re-publish our ebook “Everything You Need To Know About Working From Home”.
It’s probably the only resource about working from home you should be reading and sharing with your colleagues, as it covers a variety of topics like:
- Designing your home workspace
- Techniques that will help you organize your day and stay productive
- Methods to motivate yourself and boost your energy (have you tried matching tasks with the music you’re listening to?)
- Making yourself seen and heard in a remote team
- Creating wind-down routines and practicing mindfulness
- And… many others!
Download this all-in-one ebook prepared in collaboration with companies that joined Global Work From Home Day ’19 and improve your experience of working from home!
