The juxtaposition of all these factors prompts a much-needed discussion amongst all of us to help map out what remote work should look like going forward.

How do we maximize remote work for employees and organizations alike? How do we create a working model that satisfies those who prefer remote work compared to those who don’t? What tools/principles can we use to help us arrive at the right balance?
