While there is still uncertainty as to how integral remote working will become in the workplace, it is important to acknowledge there are pros and cons to working in this way.

Many people have greatly appreciated being able to avoid the daily commute, saving time and money without compromising on the quality of their work. In theory, this should also be of great benefit to employers too, helping firms to save money while still taking care of business.

It is easy to see why many firms and employees are in favour of remote working.

However, this will not be the case for everyone. There will be many roles where remote working isn’t suitable. You will also have many people who enjoy working alongside others, and for whom the natural camaraderie of the workplace is vital to their happiness.

This is why there will always be a clamour to have people in the office or at meetings, and this means people will always look for commuter solutions.
