Managing and Monitoring Remote Workers Using Cutting Edge Technology
Recently Anequim rolled out a robust technology tool that helps remote assistant clients approve time off, manage teammates hours, and improve efficiency.

Many of us have closed our offices and are managing our entire staff from our homes for the first time.

We say it pretty much to get people who would otherwise not feel comfortable going out on a limb to, well, walk out on that limb. We know there is something about the phrase that works logically, but what is it?
