As the COVID-19 outbreak escalates and more businesses are asking their employees to work from home (WFH), people are struggling to adapt to this “new” working style.
ICT leaders, the likes of Microsoft, Avaya and Google, are offering some of their remote working and team solutions for free for the time being, but switching to videoconferencing, webinars and remote learning can be hard and disheartening for many workers who are used to going into a crowded office.
To help you overcome concerns about working from home, CPI Media Group is hosting a virtual discussion, on March 26th, to address the challenges and benefits of working from home – until then, Tahawultech.com has rounded up ten of the funniest WFH tweets to lift your spirits in these challenging times.
