Transitioning to Working From Home

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Work has looked a little different these past few months. Our world transitioned from going to work every day to working at home with the whole family. During these challenging times, we have had to juggle getting a laptop or moving our desktop home, making sure our security is top-notch, and taking extra precautions when working with kids around. It’s been a tough change for all of us, but Links is always here to help make the transition easy.

 

What we have been doing to help:

-Providing laptops for people to use at home
