Here are some tips for remote-work celebrations that make working alone and from home a little less isolating.
The perks of remote work are vast; the freedom to set own schedule, get to work with teams across the globe, and most days, have pajamas as work uniform.
Plan Your Own Annual Celebration
Choose an activity that brings you happiness, e.g. spa day, because your celebration is yours to design.
