Remote work is on the rise in South Africa and the world. Why is remote work becoming popular, and how can organisations manage the transition?
Remote work is the ability to produce work output while away from the regular workstation, warehouse, store, or office. It’s also known as telecommuting, teleworking, mobile work, or working from home. Remote work has always been hindered by the reliance on technology that tethered workers to their office or servers with desktops and cables. Fortunately, communication technology has advanced enough to enable a worker to access all company resources from any place, especially if it has a network.
