Thanks to the pandemic fast-forwarding remote working, many people have been given the opportunity to move their residences without compromising their careers and salary. A large number have taken full advantage and moved to places they thought would be possible only after retirement or at the cost of their salaries.
According to PwC in a January 12, 2021 article titled, “It’s Time to Reimagine Where and How Work Will Get Done,” remote work has been overwhelmingly successful for both employees and employers. In just one year, employers’ attitudes about the success of remote work jumped from 73% to 83%. Both employers and employees agree that productivity has improved due to remote work. The pandemic certainly accelerated the possibility of remote work for people and these survey findings prove that it can successfully work to benefit both employees and employers.
