Easy Email WFH Reminders for Jira

With the changes to WFH and remote work, it is more important to maintain effective communication with your dispersed team members and colleagues.

Easy Email WFH Reminders will improve team communication and help address the main problems with remote WFH, which include:-

Loneliness and isolation at work

Working from home remotely can be difficult, especially when you are not in contact with team members. Remote work often isolates team members from one another, leading to feelings of loneliness and depression.

Daily interaction and communication with team members

Loneliness and isolation can be reduced if you interact with your colleagues and team members throughout the day. This maybe by Zoom, Teams, Meet-up, Slack, Chat, Messenger, email, SMS, etc.

Easy Email WFH Reminders provides users with option to send scheduled reminder emails to one or more parties between a start and completion date on a pre-determined emailing frequency.

The benefit is, regular contact with remote WFH employees, contractors and staff to combat the effects of loneliness and isolation
