10 Great Resources For Remote Work

I’ve been keeping a small list of resources for people that are trying to work remotely even if just temporarily during this current pandemic. Below are a few links to things that are potentially helpful even if you’ve been working remotely for a while:

  1. Treehouse has made their tutorial “How To Work Remotely” free for everyone.
  2. If your office and desk are less than inspiring, Dwell has a beautiful set of 25 home office designs that are fun to peruse.
  3. LinkedIn has a great set of online courses for learning to work remotely. Their “Executive Presence” video is particularly good advice for anyone when preparing for conference calls.
  4. Remote: Office Not Required is a great, short read by the creators of Basecamp. It provides some good backstory and explanations about the values of remote work.
  5. Atlassian, one of the largest and most famous 100% remote companies,  has a great introduction to remote work.
  6. Greg Storey at InVision has an amazing curated list of remote work articles and resources. He is constantly updating the list so make sure to check back frequently.
  7. The authors of Thinking Remote have an email series that you can sign up for. It’s a fairly thought-provoking series and is limited in length so you won’t get tired of it.
  8. They also have a great podcast series titled 21st Century Work Life and leading remote teamsI’ve only recently started listening to this, but I really enjoy it.
  9. Collaboration Superpowers has a fantastic newsletter about working and managing remotely. (Also, don’t miss their really great guide for meeting facilitation!)
  10. Inc. has compiled a list of companies that are making their remote work tools free temporarily. If you’ve been curious about some of the paid teleconferencing tools, now is a great time to try them out without any cost.
