After the Covid-19 pandemic, the world witnessed a historic shift in the 2020 job market. While some companies used to offer the ability to work from home as a perk, it has now become the standard for most of them. While 2020 may be considered the year of remote work, it is just the beginning as we see the trend continuing in 2021 and even more in 2022.
How remote work is quietly remaking our lives. By 2025, an estimated 70% of the workforce will be working remotely at least five days a month. There is a great article about this at Vox.com which has the full research.
There was a time when remote work as we know it wasn’t even a possibility, because the technology didn’t exist. If your colleagues and business partners wanted to get in touch with you when you were out of the office, they couldn’t email, text or direct message you. You would’ve needed to provide an alternative phone number, pager, or even a fax number to have a work-related conversation. Even full-time “remote” positions were different from what they are today.
