Telecommuting has boomed with the evolution of Internet infrastructure and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a symbol of the dramatic changes in how people work that have occurred over the past few years. This has been accompanied by more and more companies opting for work styles that are not bound conventional frameworks as they encourage diversity in human resources and create opportunities for their empowerment.
This trend is resulting in a number of benefits for people, including more work opportunities for those who have given up working due to long-term care of a sick family member, childcare, or other reasons, and better work-life balances and better well-being as a result. At the same time, however, the fact is that the companies building these kinds of work environments are facing burdens in the need to adapt and modify not only their employment mechanisms but their backend systems and facilities.
Since the challenges and the corresponding actions to be taken will vary from industry to industry, and even workplace to workplace, many corporate managers tackling these areas face uncertainty about what to do or whom to consult to build the ideal workplace.
