In a crisis like Coronavirus, companies that can quickly transition their teams to work from home, be productive, and rekindle their internal communication and culture are more likely to survive.

 

You need a game plan to make the transition and keep it consistent every week. Here is the game plan that works. I’ve used these 10 steps successfully long before Coronavirus with teams who want to expand to remote locations and who need employees to work from home effectively.
