Everyone needs to be able to work “on the go”: staff are expected to call into conference
calls multiple times a week, and to submit communications on email and other mediums
throughout the week. While it is difficult to keep a phone and other devices charged
while working in rural areas, the best employees plan their movements well enough to
ensure being in contact at the right times.
