Remote and flexible working—especially for those juggling parenting, caregiving, and other responsibilities—tested limits of technology, communication, and continuity.


“The coronavirus pandemic taught employers that many jobs can be done remotely. What used to be seen as a tech industry and millennial fad by many, is now widely adopted.
