While Pacific communities originate from the Pacific Islands,
they extend out to almost every country on Earth.
All our Pacific communities are communal, social and always connecting face-to-face, very often around food and hospitality.
And our Pacific cultures value connectivity, making our decisions together; and going most places ... together.
When we find something good,
we share it with others.
As we prepare to lock down and self-isolate for four weeks or longer to combat COVID-19, this is a great opportunity to up-skill by learning how to use online tools to stay connected. Once we're connected, we will find the opportunity to continue working from home.
Having a team plan for working from home
might not have been on your to-do list.
COVID-19 just moved this to the top of your list.
We're seeing the negative aspect to COVID-19 but there are actually a lot of opportunities to work better by working online. I will share more on this later, but just to give you a taste...

As a result, enjoy quality family time.
Work with people around the world.
