Ultimate HR platforms for businesses

It has been no secret that due to coronavirus descending on the nation that businesses of all shapes and sizes have had no option but to transition and embrace remote working and adapt their workforce.

For some, remote working wouldn’t have been an entirely new concept, but for companies who are used to working exclusively in an office environment, it would have provided teams with logistical issues and challenges they didn’t foresee coming.

We’ve taken a look at four platforms that help employers stay in touch with employees remotely and make engaging with remote teams easier to manage.
