While remote work has become increasingly common over the past years, the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has certainly pushed the fast-forward button. In fact, a recent survey published by the World Economic Forum revealed that 98% of the workforce would like to work remotely at least some of the time for the rest of their working lives. This newly found work flexibility is especially important for working parents. In the past, only 46% of parents wanted to work remotely, but the pandemic has increased that number to 86%.
Here at Juriba, we have been working remotely from the start and we certainly understand the benefits that come with the new demand to be able to Work-From-Anywhere. We also know it comes with its own set of challenges, e.g., maintaining a healthy work-life balance and making a point to facilitate open communication and collaboration.
