The current pandemic has significantly changed the way we live and work. The business world was forced to adapt to these new circumstances, and some businesses did not survive disruption. The questions that are still unanswered deal with the future of our work, looking into 2021 and beyond. It seems that remote work is here to stay, and it is expected that many companies will adopt that as a new, normal way of work. Office space will also be changed, while employees may see higher flexibility in work-life balance, the job market will also see increased competition.
- Remote work has become one of the new social norms, with major companies like Google embracing it fully.
- This new flexibility will allow companies to save on real estate because they will need fewer offices.
- Remote work will also lead to higher levels of competition for potential employees, now that the market has expanded.
“Companies that were once hesitant about remote work will likely be more open to it after the pandemic ends. Work-from-home mandates were a necessary experiment that proved remote jobs work.”
