In the last year and a half, many of the US workforce turned to remote working practices. We started working from our bedrooms in pyjamas and filed our smart office wear into a vacuum bag for the distant future. Face-to-face business meetings became a thing of the past, and Zoom calls took over the working day.
Initially, the business world feared how remote working practices would impact their day-to-day routine. Enterprise Technology Research predicts a whopping 34.4% of US workers will work from home in 2021– compared to just 16.4% before the pandemic. Remote working practices can help companies to save money on business travel, office rent and energy bills.
