Remote work has been around for some time for certain companies, but 2020 definitely changed the course of what a normal workforce looked like across the board. Employers had to immediately adjust to accommodate what was happening at that time. And in the last few years, an employee’s perspective on what a workforce can be, and is, has changed. Where does your company stand? Are you on the same playing field as your competitors?
