This allows for opportunities in workforce flexibility and with that, opportunities to design and implement processes and networks that enable the flexibility that the workforce is now asking for.

Tech giants such as Amazon, Apple Facebook, Google, and Microsoft and have extended work from home orders into 2021. These influential organizations are ones that historically lead to workplace trends that SMB's later follow.
