Essential Soft Skills as a Remote Workforce

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the future of work was undergoing a digital transformation, in which technology was impacting the workforce across all industries.

Fostering Team Communication While Remote

As humans, we are wired to seek social connections. While some individuals maintain their social support system through family, friends, or hobbies, for many, an in-person office setting provides a sense of belonging and community.

Further Your Professional Learning at Home

As the reality of COVID-19 has set in, the workforce has shown resilience transitioning to teleworking while learning new technologies and homeschooling their children. Although working from home might be starting to feel easier, it may also be challenging to maintain control of your daily schedule and productivity.
