With COVID-19 seemingly dominating literally every facet of media, remote working is very much on the corporate agenda at the moment. But while many organizations already have it as part of their standard office culture, it is by no means a ubiquitous option. Although it simply isn’t practical for many occupations, research has found that 70% of people around the world work remotely at least once a week and 53% do so for at least half the week.
