Confident Communication for Women in the Workplace 

Employers have found that work from home isn’t half as bad after all. On the contrary, remote work has had a positive effect on productivity and reduced recurring expenses both for employers and employees.

Employee soft skills remain relevant, as always but understandably the focus shifts to workforce skills that facilitate remote working and build resilience.
