Tips for working from home
Use Video Chat
For many of us, in-person contact is important because we are able to read social cues when talking with someone. When we work from home, our in-person contact with co-workers disappears; as such, it becomes important to see the people you talk to. If you would like to know more about utilising video chat, please speak to us.
Taking advantage of chat functions and the option to share screens can be beneficial to ensure the team is working together. Collaboration tools fuel discussions providing the ability to ask questions and update fellow team members in one place.
