WFCA held a webinar to explain the impact of the new law on PPP loans.

Congress recently passed legislation that substantially changed some of the rules regarding PPP loan forgiveness. The new legislation includes needed flexibility on how long the loan can be used to cover payroll costs and covered expenses, and on calculation of the amount of the loan that can be forgiven. The new law also, however, raises some issues that have caused some confusion.

Empower Partners Webinar - June 4 - Be More Productive From Your Home Office

How to be More Productive From Your Home Office

No commute. No managers or co-workers hanging over your shoulder. No one stealing your lunch from the office fridge. Remote work is wonderful. But it's not without its challenges.

Steve Hillis with Empower Partners discussed numerous topics on how you can work remotely and continue to be efficient in your daily responsibilities.

Ask anyone who works remotely and continue as a telecommuter or from home. It's not all rainbows and unicorns. A report from the United Nations International Labour Organization found that while employees are more productive when they work outside of the conventional office, they're also more vulnerable to working longer hours, a more intense work pace, work-home interference, and, in some cases, greater stress.
