3 Reasons to Double up on Emerging Technology Training During Crises

“In some regard, productivity is up. 1901 Group employees don’t have to commute anymore, and as a result, many work an hour or two more during the day.

I’d say probably 20% want to be back in the office because they miss the camaraderie. Technologically speaking, everything has worked relatively smoothly for 1901 Group.”
