In early 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S., much of the public health workforce suddenly shifted to full-time remote work and service delivery. These professionals immediately faced a number of critical challenges, from managing the stress of the crisis while maintaining productivity to converting in-person meetings and trainings to online settings. To support the workforce in navigating these unique circumstances, three regional Public Health Training Centers—the Midwestern Public Health Training Center, the Region IV Public Health Training Center, and the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center—joined forces to quickly produce an easily accessible and comprehensive training. Thriving in an Online Work Environment features over 20 one- to three-minute videos with tips and best practices from a variety of subject matter experts. The training is organized into five sections: Addressing Equity Issues in the Virtual Environment, Converting In-person Trainings to Online Trainings, Managing Stress and Productivity, Virtual Meeting Facilitation, and Working Remotely). The training can be viewed in its entirety, or learners can select individual components to complete. Each section also includes an annotated, hyperlinked resource list for additional learning.
