5 tools that will help make 'Work from Home' more effective during COVID-19.

COVID-19 has driven companies to turn to remote working very quickly. Although this movement went reasonably well, in a short period of time, there are a few pitfalls that business managers need to be aware of. After all, the implementation of remote working is more comprehensive and deeper than most organizations realize, but has added benefits such as a better life/work balance, happier employees, and even environmental benefits.
