June 11, 2020
By Robb Henshaw

When the pandemic forced everyone to work from home, that immediately led to months of speculation about whether or not this great “remote work experiment” would actually change people’s (or, the bigger question, business’) opinions of whether or not working remotely is a viable long-term alternative. It’s safe to say at this point that the tide has changed.

Are You Ready for the New Normal?

May 28, 2020
By Robb Henshaw

Just a couple of months ago, most IT departments were forced to scramble to enable remote work for most (if not all) of their workforces. While some viewed that as a temporary challenge at the time, it is now universally clear that people working from home is part of the new normal moving forward.
