 If there is anything we've learned from 2020 it is that remote work is here to stay and your business needs to embrace it wholeheartedly. The key is that you’ve got to do it right. 

When it comes to helping your firm embrace successful remote work, there is a lot of information on the internet to sift and sort through. Not all of it is accurate or even helpful. Lucky for you, we have some of the most valuable resources about remote work. Our team has put together many tips and resources for working from home, key technology, tips to networking, and navigating a virtual conference and it's time we round it all up and put it together in one place.

2. Legal Tech Tools to Help with Remote Work

5. Legal BI- No Longer a Nice to Have, a Need to Have

We had a phenomenally seamless transition to work-from-home.  Thank God we have BigSquare Business Intelligence, It has been a huge help!  In this environment, the need for real time data is now even more exaggerated.


A few other important ways to embrace successful remote work:
  • When you need to come up with creative ideas, change the scenery, move from your kitchen table to the back patio.
  • Take care of your mental health. Being home alone is tough and being "on" all the time can lean to burnout. Make sure you are spending time to fuel yourself, go for a walk, take breaks when needed.
  • Don't forget to communicate and socialize!
  • Even though trying to do a million things in day can feel productive, it doesn't necessarily translate to success. Slow down. Be methodical. Be purposeful. And know where you are trying to go.... and make it happen!
