Yahoo employees can’t do it anymore, but maybe you still can. Working from home continues to gain in popularity and so do the tools that help make it easier.
One such tool is Kona, a recently launched, free, cloud-based social collaboration and productivity platform from Deltek. It empowers individuals and groups to privately connect, organize, discuss and get things done together at work, whether in the office or working remotely. Realizing the challenges that distributed teams in many locations may face when trying to get purposeful things accomplished with co-workers, Kona brings all the components of people’s work lives together into one manageable space.
Kona is focused on the needs of both employers and their employees and was designed to empower them to be more productive at work and home. Companies can quickly integrate, set-up and implement Kona with no IT support, so that workers can begin working collaboratively via the platform. In addition, managers are able to see the activities taking place within Kona, which makes workers accountable for their actions. This is particularly relevant to the remote worker debate, where company-wide adoption of online tools is even more important as managers seek to maintain productivity among their team members.
