Remote work and virtual teams are now a prevalent way of working, with on-site employees often the exception rather than the rule. Now that work-from-home has proven to be a viable alternative, C-Suite executives and business owners are less likely to invest in the resources, infrastructure, and space needed for all of their workers to return to business as usual.
