Two More Quick Points on Working Remotely

  1. If your staff can’t work remotely because they’re using desktops rather than laptops, the TechSoup Refurbished Hardware program is a great source of low-cost, high-quality laptops that come preloaded with Windows 10 and the Microsoft Office Suite (but not Office 365). And, as mentioned above, we have Mobile Beacon hotspots to connect to the Internet from anywhere. TechSoup also has several headset* options available to nonprofits.
  2. You should review your organization’s remote work policy to ensure that the guidance for technology use is up-to-date and relevant to this situation.

The day I stood with the lords.

A rainbow is visible in golden sky while it drizzles. A man walks across the street with his umbrella. A yellow car looks unusually beautiful in the setting.
