The future of work has officially arrived, and companies have been forced to reevaluate their operations seemingly overnight.
Remote and distributed working were once seen as a rare perk that only a few white-collar employees could experience. Now, organizations all over the world have transitioned to this style of working and may never turn back.
Adopting remote working is beneficial to companies looking to diversify their talent, while allowing employees to have a healthier work-life balance.
While remote working is expected to be readily adopted, some companies still have a need for in-house teams. Having a hybrid of both remote and in-person teams provides companies a healthy mix of talent, which breeds innovation.
As flexibility becomes a need for most workers, freelancers also want the benefits of regular employees. Offering work benefits without taking away flexibility is the best way for organizations to attract and retain the best talent.
Additionally, technology has and will continue to play a significant role in how the workplace is shaped. Using collaborative tools and communication channels allow for amplified teamwork that have never been seen before.
