It is interesting to note that the increasing appeal of remote working is leading many businesses, including those that are perceived to be 'traditional', to quickly adopt flexible and remote working options for their staff as a recruitment, engagement and retention tool. It is likely that this trend will continue as remote working becomes a default expectation for parts of the workforce. Employers will need to plan carefully to ensure that remote workers enjoy their flexibility as well as feel part of a collaborative and 'joined-up' working environment. Considerations around system security will also be paramount.
