Many organisations used to be wary of remote working, thinking it could affect the productivity of the workforce. After all, how can employees remain productive and collaborate well if they’re not all in the same physical office? Nevertheless, disruptive changes happened in the last year or so, compelling organisations to shift the majority of their employees to work anywhere, especially from home.
It is now apparent that this setup will stay even after the pandemic, with 97% of employees saying they don’t want to return to the office full-time. Working from home may even improve the productivity of the workers and gave them a more balanced work-life experience.
