Where Does Our Future Lead? Remote, Hybrid Remote or Elsewhere?

The year 2020 introduced the largest remote work experiment ever. Hybrid remote seemed the obvious solution as we moved into 2021. But was it a solution or another forced experiment? Does remote still seem like a better option or a temporary fix? We will explore why some organizations have chosen remote work, some of the key principles that need to be in place to make remote work successful, and when being face-to-face still provides the better option for certain types of work.
