Before this virus, only 2% of workers in the US worked remotely. Obviously that has changed temporarily during this lockdown. But many people were predicting that work-from-home would become more prevalent and permanent after the pandemic lockdown once companies saw that workers could still be effective and compared that with the cost-saving opportunities. Still it’s surprising to see the biggest players in the tech industry taking such dramatic steps in that direction.
Shopify, Twitter, and now Facebook are all now shifting to permanent remote work arrangements for large swaths of their staff. The significance of this cannot be overstated. So many other companies follow the trends set buy these giants. We are at the beginning of a tectonic culture shift that will lead to societal change on par with the industrial revolution.
