Remote Work Tips Webinar

Sponsored by Proving Ground  

Click here the video.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies in the design, engineering, and construction fields are adopting remote working policies for the first time. We recognize that this is a challenging change to make as many team environments have expectations for in-person collaboration. 100% of Proving Ground's staff works remotely across 4 different US states. Some of us have over 8 years experience working primarily from our home offices. Collectively, our team has adopted practices for collaborative work, productive home offices, and creating healthy remote work culture. We have decided to share our knowledge and experiences in the hope it helps others through a free and public webinar. This will be recorded and published to YouTube.

PROVING GROUND is a digital design agency that enables digital transformation with creative data-driven solutions to the building industry. Founder Nate Miller, Omaha,
