Make your remote-work experience remarkable!

Telecommuting: Most of us have been doing it for awhile now, but could we be working smarter?

The “remarkable remote” series from People-OnTheGo offers a thoughtful approach and practical tips for perfecting the art of telecommuting. Join us for three relevant workshops designed to support your remote-work experience: Remarkable Remote Meetings, Remarkable Remote Worker and Remarkable Remote Teams.

Each course addresses challenges in various situations and offers practical solutions for addressing them. You’ll also have opportunities to connect with cross-departmental colleagues during in-course breakout sessions!
