In the last few months, the way that we work, collaborate, and interact on a daily basis has changed drastically. Our time spent physically in the office has been significantly reduced, and nearly all of our meetings are being done through zoom or some alternative virtual platform.

Try implementing these tips throughout your organization and see the positive results it has on your team.
