The coronavirus crisis has seen all schools across the UK close indefinitely, with most accepting that the kids won’t be back in school before the start of the traditional summer holidays in July.

This means that, in addition to having to work from home, those of use with kids will now have to consider them during our daily routine – although everyone will have work to do, everyone being stuck in the house hardly makes for conditions that are conducive to productivity.

If you work from home you most likely have the relative luxury to go about your business wearing whatever you feel comfortable in – no need for a suit and tie if you’re not in the mood, no need to even get dressed if you don’t feel like it.

As appealing as answering business calls in the buff may sound though, it’s not ideal for productivity – clothes that negatively effect your social standing or self esteem will have the same effect on your productivity.

While you may feel comfy slouching around in your pyjamas, you’ll not be taking care of business to the best of your ability.

The Dominican Republic has played a major part in the growth story that is the Latin American economy.

The Caribbean island shares around half its land mass with Haiti, is home to 9.4 million people and is a middle-income developing country with the largest economy in the region – not least because of the relatively recent boom in holidaymakers seeing it as a cut price way to do the Caribbean.

The economy has been enjoying steady growth since 2005 but is currently going through a slight downturn – GDP has average 6% in the last nine years but currently sits at 4.1%.

Tourism is the country’s leading foreign exchange earner although agriculture, construction and mining all play an important part in keeping the country ticking over.

And its strategic geographical location means its ports and airports offer easy access to the rest of the Caribbean, the US and Latin America.

So if you’re thinking of doing business in the Dominican you’ll need an east-to-use and reliable international conference call provider – so here’s how to set up a call in a few simple steps…
