  • Reports show that tech giants (Google and Facebook), as well as a lot of small and medium businesses are making remote work the new norm.
  • Surveys show that a lot of workers support the idea of working from home indefinitely, younger people are more willing to do so than older workers.
  • Surveys of IT managers show that in their mind, this situation has created a more positive view of remote workplaces, so they’re rethinking how they do things.
  • As one expert says, one of the biggest holdbacks of remote work is trust.
  • However, counting workers at the office is not management, it’s baby-sitting, so the solution is better education for managers.
