Making Working Remotely Feel Normal

Making Working Remotely Feel Normal

Organizations who thought remote work was temporary may need to make long-term changes to their workplace culture and provide additional support for employees working from home. Of the five million employees who started working remotely during the first lockdown, over 2.4 million Canadians who normally do not work from home were still doing it in October (RBC, 2020). RBC economists report that not only do most Canadians want to work at home at least some of the time, but also that this culture shift is coming whether employers want it or not (Better Dwelling, 2020).
