C-suite executives offer advice on working remotely during pandemic - C-level execs in industries from biotech and telecom to accounting and marketing are making sure their employees have the proper resources to carry on. Here's what they're doing:

  • Jeff Foley, COO of Propeller, "We have some team members who start their days early (and) some who set up an on-off schedule with partners, so each parent has half a day dedicated to work and the other half dedicated to kids"
  • Alexander Hudek., CTO and co-founder of Kira Systems, “Our purely remote workers are in some ways more engaged in helping everyone else adjust by sharing tips and rituals that work for them, including virtual mixers and coffee chats, the sharing of personal photos, and all kinds of hijinks on Zoom”
