As we are all scrambling for external monitors, desks, and home office snacks. Microsoft has put together an offer to simplify the transition to the remote work life. They are offering Microsoft Teams for free for 6 months. This gives remote employees a secure way to chat, share documents, and host video/conference conference calls from the comfort of their home.
