Working Remotely as a Team

#Covid19 is spreading into more cities in Canada. Ontario government has just announced the plan to close all public schools for 2 weeks. Public health is recommending social distancing by asking people to stay home to #flattenthecurve. Because of this, many of us are making big changes to keep the people around us healthy and safe. Companies and government agencies are starting to adopt working from home policies. However, not all departments or companies are prepared for a transition of this size or even know where to start.  


While moving to work remotely can be a significant change for a business it can be very successful. In order to ensure its success, business owners need to consider a few things when adopting collaboration tools like Teams and SharePoint. These elements can be easily overlooked when initially setting up the tools, but they are significant factors that ensure your remote work can function smoothly.
