For over the past year, many of us have been working remotely. Thanks to the prevalence of vaccines, the pandemic is starting to come to a close. Many companies are coming to an inflection point: do we make people come back into the office? Have we become more open to remote work? Or have we learned nothing?
I wrote that over a year ago thinking we might get out of this thing soon. Clearly, I didn't get much further than the paragraph above, likely because the pandemic isn't really over. Plus I'm terrible at predicting the future. I still haven't won that lottery mega jackpot.
The world feels more open to remote work than before--especially tech. They simply didn't have a choice. Office employees were forced out of their offices and told to work from home. Some companies handled this really well and are thriving with remote work, while others truly struggled.
