10 Statistics on At-Home Workers That Prove There’s a Need to an Easy Way to Send Company Equipment Back

The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a major shift on how many companies conduct business on a daily basis. People quickly saw the benefit of being able to work remotely by saving money on commuting and childcare costs to be able to spend more time with family.

Due to this dramatic change employees began to realize their worth and harnessing their leverage for a more acceptable work/personal life balance. Some companies were quick to embrace this new way of work while others were not as accepting and felt that remote work would only be a temporary situation.

A temporary situation does not seem to be the case though and companies are going to have to accept this shift or find themselves losing talent to other businesses that allow for remote work. Despite entering an endemic phase, these statistics on at-home workers suggest that remote work is here to stay – highlighting a growing need for an easy way to send company equipment back.
