Meetings have taken on a whole new meaning this year because of COVID-19. Virtual collaboration has become the norm, and for many, it will remain that way for the foreseeable future. Even here at LogMeIn, where remote work has always been part of our DNA, we've analyzed and adjusted many of our policies to truly become a remote-first organization.
As businesses start to consider these long-term strategic shifts to remote work, they need to look closely at their employee behavior as a guiding light. We're all playing by a new set of rules, which means changes in the characteristics of your employee collaboration. Employee needs, behaviors, and attitudes as related to remote work are probably very different than the last time you checked in!
