As more of us than ever are working from home, it can be easy for feelings of social isolation and loneliness to creep in.
We know the number one challenge for remote workers is feeling like they’re not part of a community so this webinar will address how we can build that community through technology, culture and our own networks. It will also give you tips and tricks for managing anxiety as the Coronavirus pandemic continues.
We’ll look at how our bodies process stress and fear, and suggest some simple ways to manage your stress-levels while at home. In particular we’ll look at how building a community of other remote workers can not only help you feel more confident and calm but also boost your productivity and keep your working life on track.
