Companies are enabling remote work to keep business running while helping employees follow social distancing guidelines.
A typical company saves about $11,000 per half-time telecommuter per year, according to Global Workplace Analytics.
As companies adapt to their remote work structures, the coronavirus pandemic is having a lasting impact on how work is conducted.
With the U.S. government declaring a state of emergency due to the coronavirus, companies are enabling work-from-home structures to keep business running and help employees follow social distancing guidelines. However, working remotely has been on the rise for a while.
“The coronavirus is going to be a tipping point. We plodded along at about 10% growth a year for the last 10 years, but I foresee that this is going to really accelerate the trend,” Kate Lister, president of Global Workplace Analytics, told CNBC.
