With physical distancing and self-isolation now a necessity, most employees are currently working from home. For those familiar with working remotely, this will be a pretty seamless transition, but for those who aren’t, shifting from the office to the home office can be a bit of a challenge.  

Working from home requires rules and boundaries for a successful transition, but generally — after a bit of a set-up period — productivity shouldn’t suffer with a distributed team.
