Of course, it’s pretty much a privilege to be sitting at home in front of a computer screen, instead of restocking shelves in the supermarket or working at a hospital. However, it can still be difficult for some people to organize their working day.[Read more…] about One Team despite Corona: The Practical and Psychological Issues
