A month ago, no one heard of social distancing. Now, at the time of writing, I’m only allowed to leave the house when absolutely necessary. In the middle of this craziness, all of us are trying to adjust to this new ‘normal’ we find ourselves in.
For millions of people, that’s meant transitioning overnight from working in an office with all their colleagues to working from their homes on their own. As many are finding out, that can be a lot harder than just taking a company laptop home.
At Reply, we’ve been fortunate in that we were already a fully remote company, meaning there’s been very little impact on our workflow. However, having spoken to our customers, we know that many are finding the change hard.
