Remote Work The new normal

Many of us have been working from home for the last few months and I expect that some are now considering this as a permanent option. If this is you, then Gren Gale’s latest book: “Remote Work The new normal” will interest you.

The author has worked remotely for several years and has a great deal of experience in this area. Interestingly, he was writing this book at the beginning of 2020 and completed it in the middle of the coronavirus epidemic. Thus making this a very topical book for 2020.

Remote Work The new normal has seven chapters. The first chapter is the introduction and looks at why you might need the book. Chapter two addresses the important issue of whether you can handle working remotely. The author draws out the plus and minus points of remote working and how one might find remote work. In chapter three he looks at how to build successful remote teams, which managers will find helpful. Chapter four is about technology and tools that are important for communication, project management and knowledge bases. One thing that must never be overlooked with remote working is security and this is covered in chapter five. The next chapter is about legal points and the author speaks about publishing a home working policy. The final chapter is the conclusion in which Gren Gale describes briefly some advantages of remote working. Remote Work The new normal is approximately 170 pages and can be read through in under 2 hours.

If you are someone who is interested in working from home then it is important to research the matter thoroughly. Due to his vast experience of remote working, the author will raise issues for you to ponder which you may not have previously considered. Most would agree that it is sensible to take advice from such a person. This book will prove to be a very helpful tool for you to use and I highly recommend it.
