The pandemic highlighted the need for digital accessibility.
Many experienced a sudden rise in communications, daily tasks, and demands on our time.
Learn strategies to help improve how you organize your communications, track your tasks, and achieve your work goals.
Day 1 of working from home at the start of the pandemic changed many things. Before: you had to work to get responses from coworkers. After day 1: everyone was reaching out for your help.
Two years later the increased pace continues. And two years later for many, staffing levels remain unchanged. One opportunity: learn ways to work smarter.
