Schools are closing, offices are closing – pushing employees to be home whether they are able to work remotely or not. Companies that have the technology and foundation set up for a remote workforce are encouraging employees to work from home if they can, in order to help prevent the spread and possible contraction of the coronavirus.
Not every employee in every position can actually do their work remotely. But for those who can there are a lot of technology solutions that help keep employees connected to increase productivity and operations.
Below is a list of technologies that help bridge the office and remote workforce.
