Have you been asked to suddenly work from home?
For many of us, that doesn’t sound like such a bad thing. But finding yourself with the same projects and responsibilities, only sans team, can make maintaining your momentum harder than you think.
Organizing your virtual workspace is the best way to start. You can think of monday.com as your Work OS, housing all of your company’s workflows, projects, and communication. But like any OS, there are other collaboration tools, that, in addition to monday.com, can really help you work remotely, better.
We’ve put together our 5 must-have programs that can get you performing as usual, right away. They will help ensure you don’t lose any of the value you’re accustomed to getting from your team (but you can still wear your pajamas—no one will know).
