In November of 2017 I launched a program for local businesses to help them adopt remote work options for their office staff. Living in Maine, when winter weather hits it can have a huge impact on office productivity. Winter weather, school cancellations and sick children can leave the office looking like a ghost town. It can also bring productivity to a screeching halt.
Now it doesn’t have to.
Online technology have given everyone the option of getting work done anywhere there is an internet connection and a connected device. Once a perk for large corporations with employees who needed to be mobile, working remotely has steadily grown in popularity and will continue to do so. Remote work options have grown as well, and now it’s much easier for even the smallest business to adopt. In fact there are so many new options out there that it tends to get confusing. So confusing in fact that business owners who like the idea become overwhelmed rather than doing anything about it.
Which remote work options are right for your business?
The confusion over remote work options was the reason I created my “Winterize Your Business with Online Technology” program. It consisted of a 30 minute consultation or presentation that laid out the steps a business needs to take in order to offer remote work options to their staff. It also shared some of the online tech and tools that make remote work not only possible, but productive. Although I offered it locally here in southern Maine in November & December, I know that no matter where a business is, they deal with situations that cause staff attendance issues.
It’s not just about winter weather.
School vacations and cancellations. Sick children. Caring for a loved one. Family obligations. The cable guy. Any and all of these things can lead to a staff member calling out of work because they need to be at home. All of them are also instances where work could still be done if the option to work remotely was there. Call it a Plan B for productivity.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in Maine or Southern California, offering your staff remote work options is just a good idea. That’s why I recorded my “Winterize Your Business with Online Technology” program and am offering it as an On-Demand webinar. And for a limited time only, I’m offering it for free. So don’t wait.
