COVID-19 has revolutionized the work world. While working conditions vary by location, most of us are still spending at least part of our week holed up in a home office, collaborating with colleagues via Zoom meetings. Remote work has become a norm. But how has that affected networking?
Before COVID-19, businesses used third-party meeting platforms like Skype and Zoom to connect with employees working from home or in some other remote fashion. With COVID-19, these tools went from a nice option to absolutely essential – with some companies having huge virtual meetings several times a day.
With face-to-face conversations being the exception these days, it’s more important than ever to leverage traditional email platforms and apps such as Slack to get on the same page as your colleagues. Make sure to put in some extra time to create a polished comprehensive text that properly conveys your message.
