How to make conference calls from a landline phone

These days, we seem to be using our mobiles for almost everything. There’s even been debate in recent years about whether we should replace desk phones in offices with mobile devices. But most of us are still regularly using landlines, whether personally, professionally or both.

How to be a good employer to remote staff

We’ve all heard the mythical stories about companies which have gone beyond strewing around a few bean bags to becoming ginormous, open-plan professional spaces with free food around the clock, puppy pens, gyms and beds for employees to nap in whenever they get sleepy.

Conference calls for travellers

As summer reaches the northern hemisphere, the numbers of people jetting off are steadily increasing. While we have had uncharacteristically warm weather recently in Britain as the thermometer reached its highest point in forty years, many of us seek even sunnier pastures, or simply want the excitement of travelling somewhere new.

But though being in a brand new place can be truly exhilarating, it doesn’t come without some challenges. For many, it is the distance itself, the very thing a traveller is seeking, which can be difficult.

On 1st July 2015 there was a significant change to the way you’re billed for calling numbers that begin with 084, 087, 09 or 118.
