Every front page in the world is talking about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many nations are in lockdown and governments are enforcing social distancing rules to help fight the alarming spread of coronavirus. Work from home (WFH) is now the new normal for most businesses. In today’s episode (recorded remotely, of course), Mark and David chat about how the coronavirus outbreak has affected ScreenCloud as well as their WFH experiences and the challenges of staying connected. Even though remote work has been around for a while, most companies aren’t set up for it. It can be a challenging adjustment due to the loss of face to face interactions with colleagues as well as the necessity of being online at all times. 

The founders also discuss the steps ScreenCloud has taken to help staff and customers during this difficult time. This includes crediting accounts for clients who have had to close their premises and building out a new WFH solution to help individual employees easily consume information while working from home - outside of already oversaturated channels. It's undeniable that we're dealing with a tough situation, but might we be hopeful that many organizations will come out of this stronger and realize that working from home has real benefits?
