Is Remote Working Really the Future of Work?

If we turn back the clock just 10 or 15 years, we’d be in a time when remote work was pretty rare. Employers were still locked into the idea that people had to be in the office for them to be at their productive best, and the benefits of letting people telecommute really weren’t all that apparent.
