learning and development logo, white to red background

People Development are running four online, facilitator-led courses, designed to support colleagues with different challenges associated with working from home for a prolonged period of time. Each individual session covers a different topic giving practical tips and strategies.

Working from home can be easy to do for a short time, but in the long term most people experience problems with motivation and isolation. They also often need to deal with difficult domestic issues of distractions and workspace.
