“Through 2024, around 30% of all employees working remotely will permanently work at home.”

This is just one example of the impact the last 12 months have had and will continue to have on our working lives. How should organisations respond to this shift in remote working and what impact has this had on the services CIOs and IT leaders offer employees?
