Greetings, fellow remote workers! How is everyone holding up? If you’re still in the early stages of a work-from-home arrangement, we know that it can be a bit of an adjustment. Between impromptu visits from kids (sometimes welcome, and other times a bit distracting), working with pets around, and a new meaning to the term “casual Friday,” there’s a lot of change that happens to your day-to-day when work becomes a completely remote affair. 

Whether you’re loving it, or not quite sold yet, a little comedic relief can go a long way in times of flux. Though we’ve been working remotely at Perkuto for quite some time now, we’re still having a good laugh on the remote work jokes making their way around social media recently.

And lastly, let’s not forget about looking good on video calls:

Jokes aside, we know that working from home presents its own set of challenges. We count ourselves fortunate that Perkuto is – and always has been – a remote workplace. Our humble advice to those still figuring things out? Stay patient, and remember to laugh at yourselves from time to time.
