The COVID-19 global pandemic came on fast and hit businesses of all levels hard. Almost overnight the vast majority of the global workforce were forced into working remotely. Across the world sky scrapers and office blocks lie empty as kitchens, living rooms and gardens have evolved into the new work hubs. This has left employers scrambling to come up with solutions and tools in order to keep their business's up and running.
What no one saw coming out of all this was the results. In recent weeks multiple journalistic studies carried out by the likes of "Forbes" and "Airtasker"have revealed that the remote workforce is proving to be far more effective.
"Remote employees work an additional 1.4 more days per month than in-office employees, which is nearly 17 additional workdays a year"
It is inevitable that employers will seek to adapt and implement remote working within their organisations. Benefitting both employees and employers, saving in cost, time and resources. As a result of this new emerging and somewhat unexpected trend, and huge new gap in the market has been exposed. Kitting out the home office from keyboard covers to cybersecurity will involve everyone from startups to multinationals.
Exciting times ahead!
