Remote working is increasingly on the rise and providing impactful benefits to both businesses and employees. This course touches on all the important aspects of it, from what it involves, the pros and cons while also giving practical tips that can be applied to any organization. One of the major things I enjoyed about it is that it gives a real case scenario of using remote working within distributed team. I believe this important for all businesses, especially knowing what action to take in order to engage and connect with employees more. I would recommend this course to any business, both global and local, who want to utilize talent regardless of location while also valuing and supporting their employees.
