    Working Together In Business Whilst Being Apart

    Working together in business produces enormous benefits but with the help of IT technology it's far easier to work together whilst being apart. What do I mean by this, well if there is one thing the businesses found out from Covid-19 is that staff working from home when more productive especially if they could work with other members of staff on projects.

    Staff were able to adapt quickly to new ways of working which has surprised a lot of business owners but given the right tools they were able to change how they worked and interacted with colleagues.
