2020 was the year when work went remote. In a matter of days, entire workforces were sent home and told to set up shop. Employees with no prior experience to working from home were asked to navigate digital communication platforms, online meeting tools, and field a deluge of email.
While some people prefer the remote worklife, it’s not for everyone. You have to be highly self motivated, proactive in your outreach to colleagues, and content with some amount of solace and isolation. When thrown into this type of environment, unprepared, it can be a scary and difficult experience. Not to mention that learning how to get work done in a virtual team takes time and patience.
