In April many businesses without a remote workforce solution found themselves scrambling to get employees set up to work remotely as many states across the US began to shut down.

While we always strongly recommend clients establish remote workforce policies and complete training before an emergency, we know it’s not always possible. Emergencies happen, but when you are not prepared, sometimes you’re forced to work with the means available and in most cases, a short window of time.
