The Coronavirus or the COVID-19 has single handedly changed the normalcy of the World. What started as a minor outbreak, quickly fanned across the globe affecting more than 2 million people and the number of victims is just getting higher with every passing day. Declared as a pandemic by the WHO, the COVID-19 outbreak took a toll on not only the virus-affected patients but also on the businesses and industries of the world.
With the cure for the virus not being on the cards in the near future, the current restrictions and alterations will be the new norm going forwards. One such major alteration that the world saw is the option to work from home. Although the work from home option cannot be applied in all industries, most of the businesses opt for this safer version to ensure business continuity.
The pandemic indeed has given rise to a new era of remote working. More and more businesses are embracing this option as it reduces the overhead costs for the company and results in higher productivity. Although it is not feasible for all the industries, the digitally savvy companies and the companies with cloud-based work systems can easily adopt it.
