The Company Reality At the present Year Facing New Challenge, The new reality is forcing companies to have remote work as an option, mainly to avoid the crowding of their employees and minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus in the event of an outbreak at their facilities.
The trend has been fueled by the increasing use of digital technologies such as smartphones, tablets and personal computers to work from home or on the go, which is rapidly transforming the traditional work model.
Stanford University conducted a study that found that in the United States, a large portion of today’s workforce works from home.
“We found that 42 percent now work from home full time, while another 33 percent are not working. The remaining 26 percent work on their company premises, primarily as essential service workers. Almost twice as many employees work from home than at the workplace,” the study reveals.
