The WFH movement has changed the outlook for American businesses as they discover its benefits and learn to optimize their remote work environments for efficiency, productivity, and cost. Workers are supportive of the new landscape for work because it enables a greater work-life balance, among countless other lifestyle and professional benefits. Teams benefit because they have access to a greater talent pool.
Leaders are quick to adjust to the new normal too, as they recognize the potential for lower costs and more flexibility. Many are shifting their perspectives and redirecting funds to support the new work paradigm for their U.S.-based workforce. In fact, among the Fortune 500 list of CEO’s, almost three-quarters say that the best investment opportunity is right here in the United States – not China, Europe, India, or anywhere else in Asia.
The key to all these positive changes and digital transformation is the IT team. Just as they worked feverishly to implement WFH technology during the early days of lockdown, they are now working diligently and tirelessly to build the new ecosystem of the future: the “new normal” that will invariably encompass many different forms of remote work, whether it is work from home, branch locations, or remote teams. They are making organizations and employees ready for whatever challenges they will face today and in the future so everyone can embrace the advantages of remote working.
