Washington County ROI Graduate Finds Remote Work!

"I decided to take the Master Remote Work Professional Certificate course as I was advised I’d be laid off due to COVID from my current job. I thought it would be a good certificate to show on my resume when looking for a new job. I ended up finding a position with BambooHR via LinkedIn. I will be working as a customer service representative for their payroll product!" - Katie Lamkin

If Remote Work Were Easy, Then You Would Been Doing It Before COVID
If you chose to practice remote work during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, congrats! You made a smart decision. While your decision was likely stressful and largely based on safety, perhaps you noticed greater cost saving and productivity? Indeed, there are clear benefits to this modern workplace practice that started in the early 1970s. Nevertheless, developing expertise in remote work operations takes a great deal of time and research. Recognizing the opportunity of remote work as a formal workplace practice well before the coronavirus era, USU Extension developed courses to support business professionals and leaders in navigating common challenges (e.g., project management, collaboration, communication, mental health etc.) found in research literature. So, the next time you read an article about whether remote work is good or bad (it isn’t), remember, just like any innovative workplace practice, it requires employee training, careful planning, and intentional, thoughtful implementation. Also, it is important to recognize the difference between a remote work expert and a remote work hater or advocate.
