Remote Work – An Emerging Global Trend
In recent months, many companies have adopted a work from home standard and are realizing the many benefits it brings – some deeming it the future of work. The development of computers, mobile technology, and software such as Zoom, Slack, and Google Hangouts is allowing for effective collaboration and productivity from home. In addition to being a necessary precaution during the pandemic, remote work also benefits business real estate costs and the environment by reducing time spent commuting.1
According to a recent Gallup poll, a stunning 50% of workers prefer working remotely, and 25% still have health-related concerns about returning to on-site work, while 25% feel completely ready to return to the office. Many recent analytics point to a vast majority of people preferring a mix of remote and in-office work, especially in fields that can afford the flexibility of coordinating projects both in and out of office.1
“Kate Lister, president of Global Workplace Analytics, said, ‘Seventy-seven percent of the workforce say they want to continue to work from home, at least weekly, when the pandemic is over.’ Lister estimates, ‘Twenty-five to thirty percent of the workforce will be working-from-home multiple days a week by the end of 2021.’”
CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, Shopify, Coinbase, Upwork, and Lambda Schools have all established a “digital by default” work from home standard. As this trend continues to gain momentum, we can expect that it will likely become the new norm post Covid-19.1
