SUCCEEDING FROM HOME: Here’s exactly how to thrive as a remote worker in the days of coronavirus


As the coronavirus spreads, working from home is the new reality for many US workers.

With more than 136,000 infected with the virus, companies are closing their doors to reduce the spread of infections. Big tech companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter announced that much of their workforce won’t be coming into the office — instead, they will be working remotely.

If your employer has unexpectedly shut down, you may feel lost navigating remote work.

Some of the biggest challenges for employers include workers struggling with loneliness, managing their time, and communication among staff members. What’s more, as schools and colleges shut down across the US, working parents must juggle company and family priorities.

While this all can be tough, finding a strategy that works can help you make it through.

Here are the best ways to stay productive and lead a team while working from home, based on advice from CEOs, freelancers, and experts who’ve done it.
