Yes, many people are currently working remotely due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Remote work has become a common option for many organizations as a way to keep employees safe while still allowing them to work. According to a survey conducted by Buffer, 99% of people want to work remotely at least some of the time for the rest of their careers.
A number of factors have contributed to the rise of remote work, including advances in technology that have made it easier for people to communicate and collaborate remotely, and the growing popularity of flexible working arrangements. Remote work has also become more prevalent as companies have had to adapt to the pandemic.
However, the remote working trend is not new, it has been on the rise before the pandemic, and many companies were already offering remote work options or were using remote workers.
It’s important to note that remote work isn’t for everyone or every job, but it is becoming increasingly popular, and many companies are now considering it as a long-term option.
