The dramatic and sudden shift to remote learning and leveraging video conferencing as a replacement for all manner of social activities has erased the idea of managing screen time for kids or slowly managing the entrance of our kids into the complex world of connected devices. At Rehrig, we began a conversation about how to help our employees, including those with very little comfort in technology, to evaluate and work through these challenges at home–believing that improving that awareness not only improved home life, but also would materially, if incidentally, improve the overall security of the enterprise. We have barely scratched the surface, though, and it would be significantly beneficial to hear what other leaders are doing to address this–whether in their own homes or facilitating discussion for the home lives of their respective employees.
