Remote work is the new normal. Businesses of all sizes and across industries around the globe have their workforce working remotely. There is no set plan on how we should be acting in this new normal. While some of us might have adapted to this new normal, many are still struggling to manage time, to be productive, and juggle between family and work.
Working from home is not as simple and easy as it sounds. One needs to have the right tools, skills, and support to work remotely. This brings a whole new set of challenges for organizations to mitigate, from productivity issues, information security to stress management. For many organizations, business continuity is becoming the primary problem.
L&D teams across the globe are under tremendous pressure than ever. They need to be agile to quickly support their employees in adjusting to this new normal and deploy all the necessary training to help them work remotely and be productive. We need them to help us close the gap between our assumptions and what our employees are actually experiencing and need during this crisis.
But this also comes as a great opportunity for the global eLearning and L&D community to work together, support each other and learn from each other. To support the community and all the organizations encouraging working from home during these challenging times, we are giving away the following to help you maintain employee wellbeing, productivity and business continuity.
