Nature and Context

Balancing work and home life has never been more important than it is now that millions of Americans are forced to work from home due to the pandemic. For many, this was a welcome adjustment, but not necessarily an easy one. Before the stay at home orders, 56% of employees have a job where at least some of what they do could be done remotely, and 80% of employees want to work from home at least some of the time. The needs of home-based professionals should be at the forefront of workplace discussions and solutions.
