Lifehacks from our Project Managers

Aug 03, 2020

[:en]Just five years ago, remote work was considered to be the way of the future, but only the distant future. Most specialized web publications predicted a rise in the popularity of telecommuting, but only in ten years' time. However, this future arrived much earlier. Buffer’s research says that 98% of employees would like to have the possibility to work remotely, and 97% consider this to be objectively optimal. The global quarantine at the beginning of 2020 accelerated the process of transferring to the remote work, and many companies continue to work in this way even after the lockdown was canceled. This situation has become somewhat of a challenge for managers: although the team and the project remained the same, many processes had to be radically changed or even set up from scratch. In this article, we are going to analyze the main problems of managing remote personnel and consider options for solving them.... Read more

How a business can help protect the environment

Jun 05, 2020

Global lockdown and suspension of production at the beginning of 2020 led to a temporary reduction in carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. It is against this background that optimistic forecasts are saying 2020 could become a peak in terms of environmental pollution, and further, the pollution will only decline. However, due to the crisis, many environmental programs have also been stopped, and businesses in need of recovery obviously won’t mind using cheap oil. In late 2020 - early 2021, the world will need effective IT solutions and initiatives for environmental protection more than ever before. Business Analysts at Andersen have identified several relevant trends that will help reduce environmental damage even if there is no slowdown in CO2 emissions.... Read more
