According to some studies done before the pandemic, only one-third of people in the US were working from home. Moreover, companies like Google were mulling over the policies for remote working in case they needed to get employees to work from home. However, the COVID-19 breakout has forced companies to get employees to work from home.
It has become necessary for organizations to digitally transform workplaces and education institutions to be able to operate effectively. Companies that are able to use technology will have to fine-tune its use and reassess the business model in near future. Therefore, that helps fast-track digital transformation to compete. As result, they have realized the importance of digital transformation.
The capacity to telecommute is an advantage numerous workers value. While numerous organizations do not have the infrastructure to offer that ability without sacrifices to “the same old thing.” Many companies hope to eventually go back to the usual work-in-office policies. However, some companies and business leaders will realize the benefits of digital transformation to employees. In fact, it can work effectively.

In addition, businesses can know how to accommodate work-from-home needs in the future when there is another outbreak or other financial reasons.
