The Next Digital Evolution: the Remote Workforce
Whether you are looking for cost-saving benefits, increasing employee satisfaction and retention, or preparing to be a leader of the next generation in digital workspaces, it’s important to realize that remote work isn’t going anywhere. Rather, it’s projected that 25% of all professional positions in North America will be remote by the end of this year. This number is only expected to increase in 2023.
Industries are shifting focus away from making their physical workspaces as productive as possible at all costs and recognizing the need to meet the evolving demands of a workforce that requires much more flexibility and some different priorities.
Digital Solutions to Meet Employee Expectations

The evolution of the digital workspace has transformed the ability of businesses to incorporate flexibility and inclusively meet the needs of their employees. Inspired to face the changing structure of the way we work globally, organizations are integrating strategies to improve the access to collaboration, access to tools and technology, ability to focus, and feeling of workplace culture and community even when working in hybrid and remote environments.
People require flexibility in order to do their best work. There is no one size fits all approach, but emerging and improving technologies make resilient business models and successful project management achievable.
