The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous effect on many different aspects of our daily lives, including how we work and communicate. One of the most significant shifts that have occurred due to the pandemic is remote work. Now, teams are scattered all over the country (and globe) as we all adjust to the new normal. For leaders, managers, and teachers, this transition to working remotely has brought numerous challenges. Not only must leaders ensure their teams are set up with tech tools for online meetings, video conferences, classes, and other virtual events to go smoothly, but there is added pressure around motivating remote teams and supporting these remote workers.
Before the pandemic, 4.7 million people worked from home at least half the week. According to Global Workplace Analytics, 56 percent of the U.S. workforce is compatible with long-term remote work. Experts predict 25 to 20 percent of workers will be telecommuting multiple days a week by the end of 2021.
