Working from home is the revolution that’s taken the world by storm.
Although its implementation is novel, its concept isn’t revolutionary at all. For years, purveyors of cloud business have been yelling into somewhat of a void – their assertions of the possibility of an entirely remote working world largely lost.
Those advocates for the working from home movement may now be sitting smug in their ‘I told you so’ euphoria – for we’ve now seen that the remote work idea works, because the cloud works, and those businesses now offering working from home products are reaping the benefits for upholding their beliefs.
But even though it works, the movement – although progressive – may have just helped uncover a myriad of social issues that could turn out to be very problematic for global business in the long run.
So, although working from home can be done with little disruption to business, should we be an entirely remote working society?
