In just one year, there’s a very stark difference between how we work.
Worldwide, 88% of the companies directed their employees to work from home after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic.
Another survey showed that 77% of work from home employees say that they are more productive now.
This is probably a by-product of less travel and less effort to dress up for work.
Removing two stressful requirements for work.
Well – maybe just one if you’re the ramp-model type.
But such a disruption from the previous norm will carry some challenges.

A survey done by Buffer shows that work from home employees struggle with…
Distractions from home.
As a result, retention is still a challenge
As per the US Bureau of Labor, around 3 million people quit their job every month from July to November 2020.
Because even with the advantages of a work-from-home setup, there’s still a big chance for work-life imbalance. Mental wellness is at the heart of this and something that can help employees stay engaged.
