Office 365 and Your Remote Workforce

Office 365 and Your Remote Workforce

July 9, 2020 in Microsoft 365/Office 365, Corporate IT Training / by Alison Chludzinski

The COVID-19 pandemic forced companies everywhere to move their operations to a substantially virtual environment. Many employees suddenly had to remotely navigate their job role in a completely digital environment. This meant a total immersion into Microsoft Teams – whether you and your team were prepared or not. Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to step back and exam how to use Teams more efficiently and productively and further take advantage of the other tools that Office 365 (now called Microsoft 365) has to offer.

Hi, I’m Lindsey! I’m a newcomer to the IT scene and so excited to be here! I grew up in Kansas City, attended Park University in Parkville where I earned a Bachelors in English, and spent a few years working in the title insurance industry. I started to feel the itch to make a change to a field where there was a lot of room for growth and opportunities for continued learning that would challenge me throughout my career and found IT to be that field.

Courtney Crespo

Courtney Crespo Featured Student

BIO

When I was a teenager, I spent my time reading books and writing short stories. I had an online journal that had an option to edit the HTML; this is when I was first introduced to web development. I taught myself neat tricks to change the appearance of my landing page. I didn’t know what web development was then, but I remember thinking whatever this was, they were lucky to have that kind of job. I joined the military right out of high school and served 8 years. I then worked various customer service jobs, my favorite being a leasing agent for apartments, because of the interactions with residents. I knew I wanted more out of my career, and so my search began at a local community college using my GI Bill. Tapping into what I really wanted out of life, I discovered I am lucky to be the person to edit what goes on behind web pages.

Bio

My name is Kayla McCullough.  I grew up living the life of a military brat; moving and traveling every other year, not really settling in one place but relocating and adjusting as my father’s profession required.  I am grateful that I have seen and lived in some amazing places but had always longed to settle down in one place to call home.  25 years ago we moved from San Francisco, Ca. to Kansas City and raised our children into adulthood and are proud of the people they are becoming.  Nowadays, we occupy our time with 3 dachshunds that have just taken over our hearts.
