The new workplace: Re-imagining work after 2020

Okta logo

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of people around the globe to stay in their homes. As a result, more employees than ever are working remotely.

To some, this new way of working comes as a welcome relief; no more commuting, no more distractions and a noticeably improved work-life balance. For others, however, this overnight shift to remote working comes as a major challenge. Many companies, across sectors, have not implemented flexible or remote working strategies and are having to put in place new measures for their workforces rapidly, often with no previous comparable experiences.

However challenging, one thing is clear: we’re never going to go back to normal as we know it, particularly when it comes to the way we work. A more agile, flexible workforce is the future, and it will bring with it major benefits from a cultural and economic perspective.
