With the escalating situation across the globe due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are scrambling to make sure their systems are robust enough to allow office-based employees to successfully work from home. But having employees work from home doesn’t have to be scary. Here we’ve put together a two-step approach to get you up and running from home for next to nothing.
If you are working from home, the last thing you want is a wired headset. Or—worse—trying to use your mobile phone while typing on your laptop. You need to be mobile and hands-free. Take a look at some of our headset options right here.
