Connect your remote workforce in Notion

Remote work is changing, but one thing remains constant: the need for a connected workspace.

An employee directory helps your team — wherever they are — stay connected.

What features does Notion offer distributed teams to help them stay connected?

While remote work is here to stay, it’s constantly evolving. And as new procedures and policies for remote work emerge, distributed teams need a workspace as unique and flexible as they are.

Notion keeps up with the pace of ever-changing workplaces by offering customizable dashboards and tools like task checklists, calendars, and wikis.
