Remote work for social organizations in the days of COVID-19

Since COVID 19 was declared a global pandemic, individual and collective routines have changed. Many social organizations had to send their collaborators to their homes to work remotely, even without being prepared to migrate their operations to virtuality and partly maintain the dynamics of institutional operation and productivity.

Given this reality and bearing in mind that our purpose of enhancing capacities for social development, we began a cycle of free webinars aimed at social organizations that need to better manage remote work and think about how digital transformation can materialize within the organization, facing a panorama like the one we are facing now.


With that clear intention, we held the following webinars:

Telework for social organizations: Productivity in times of COVID-19

We talk about tools and practical uses of technology to facilitate remote work: cloud, collaborative platforms, email uses, file sharing and how to create community and collaborate with teams from virtuality. To get to know them and learn how to use them, enter the webinar.

Microsoft Teams: collaborative work in real time

Microsoft Teams is a collaboration tool where the resources that a team needs to work efficiently are centralized. It allows monitoring projects, coordinating a work team, creating calendars and schedules for the fulfillment of activities, storing files, making calls, among other functions that facilitate collaborative work. Enter the webinar and learn how to use it.

Planner: How to manage tasks and build efficient teams

Planner is an Office 365 tool that allows a team to organize quickly, know what their tasks are, track compliance, know what happens in the team’s day-to-day, not miss a beat, among other options that facilitate the collaborative work. How to use it? This is what we learned in the webinar.
