There is a lot of wondering and uncertainty about what will happen to workplaces once the pandemic ends and whether we will be back to the office, continue remote working, or look for a hybrid approach.

So what? 90% of employees report they want to be able to keep their time-location mastery. They want to work hard but in a way that works best for them. Just like the way they have delivered over this past year when productivity was on par with previous years.

CNBC recently published an article about workers considering to quit their job because they can’t stand the feeling of being overwhelmed and, therefore, looking for new opportunities with more flexibility. “If their current company doesn’t continue to offer remote-work options long-term, they’ll look for a job at a company that does”.
