While most businesses faced the prospect of becoming a remote workplace overnight when pandemic lockdowns hit, unpacking the physical logistics was just the start. With many organizations now choosing to remain a remote workplace, at least in part, the challenge becomes building a company culture that makes remote work not only a profitable and practical choice but one that starts with your most valuable asset: the happiness and wellness of your people.
We put this book together because we saw so many people struggling as they've had to adapt to this new way of working overnight.
We had the luxury of choosing it and growing into it, and discovering what a profitable, productive and HAPPY way of working it can be! It's given us the chance to experiment a lot and find what works best, so being able to share those resources and best practices with others felt like a good thing to do.
Here's how you can use it to grow YOUR small business too ...
