Read & Share: Which U.S. Industries Are Best Geared Towards Remote Working?

The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way people do business. Working from home has become the new normal for millions of Americans as the pandemic continues to cause massive disruption and devastation. While we have embraced the positives of no commute, and not having to “dress” to go to the office, there are negatives to working remotely – lack of social interaction, lack of face-to-face meetings, ability to spontaneously drop by a co-worker’s office for advice. This is being alleviated, however, by tech solutions such as Zoom and Teams that have employers reporting higher levels of motivation and productivity.

The LinkedIn Workforce Confidence Index found that 85% of software and IT workers are just as productive and effective when working from home. And almost that same number agrees that their entire industry could be as well.
