In recent years we’ve become accustomed to hearing how new technology is changing how people think and interact. But throughout most of history, it’s been more a case of needs must – we’ve created technology to overcome challenges our environment has thrown us.
The technology that lets us work from home is good for more than carrying on business in a crisis. Employees escape cramped cubicles and noisy open offices. They cut hours (and pollution) from their daily commute. We work at times that suit us, in a place we’re most comfortable, closer to loved ones. Businesses can tap into talent around the world and reduce the cost of assets and buildings.
