How the Desk Was Won
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Canadian businesses to innovate and adapt to a “new normal”, with lots of information being compiled in an attempt to understand the vast and varied effects the pandemic has had on the global economy. Here is a sobering statistic:
According to Statistics Canada, a grand total of 6.8 million people are now working out of a home office… or nearly 40 per cent of Canada’s workforce!
Although we can’t predict the future, many people believe the work-from-home trend will continue in some form after the pandemic has ended, which indicates that the modern workplace is changing permanently.
This has both employers and employees asking difficult questions about how best we can adapt.
