The world of work as we know it will never be the same again.
For the longest time, employers refused to believe that remote work at scale was possible. But after the COVID-19 pandemic forced companies to transition to remote working, both employers and employees have found that their work environments have not only changed, but improved.
is remote work the future?
We live in the digital age where remote working is an increasing fact of working life. As long as there is trust, empathy, and structure in an organisation and strong company support, employees can remain productive and thrive at their workplaces.
There are mutual benefits of remote work for both employers and employees. Improved work-life balance, enjoying higher productivity, reduced costs and greater agility are just some of the ways remote and flexible work arrangements can be mutually beneficial.
Now more than ever, workers see remote and flexible work as a standard employee benefit in their company of choice. Companies have to reckon with these changing trends, and move with the times or risk getting left behind.
