By Elisha Kasinskas, RSA – During the past 12 months, businesses and employees in a variety of sectors have stepped up and achieved what many might have previously thought unthinkable—taking care of business remotely with no negative impact on productivity.
We continue to hear that many businesses will allow employees to work remotely at least part of the time even after the pandemic subsides, with estimates that range from 16% to 61% of American workers working from home at least part of the week well after the pandemic has subsided.
It still won’t be possible for every individual within an organization to work remotely. Consider your commercial and in-plant customers. Someone must be onsite to operate the equipment, load the media, remove and check the output, package it for delivery, and deliver it. But even in a commercial operation or in-plant, you’ll find employees not involved on the shop floor who can work remotely at least part of the time.
