A lasting trend revolutionizing our way of working

A cultural revolution in the world of work
The lockdown has led to the widespread adoption of remote work around the world and has familiarized the French with a concept that was far from being embraced before the crisis. In fact, according to a 2019 study conducted by Dares,, the statistical service of the Ministry of Labor, prior to the pandemic, only 3% of private sector employees regularly worked remotely. But during the lockdown, as many as four out of ten private sector employees continued working through remote work. A first in France!

Millions of employers and employees who were previously reluctant had no choice but to take the leap. However, this forced experience of remote work seems to have ultimately won over a large majority, as many of them continue to practice this approach at least part-time since the lifting of the lockdown. The benefits of remote work are numerous, including reduced absenteeism and delays, decreased expenses for office space and transportation, time savings, reduced stress, increased comfort, autonomy, and flexibility for employees. There are many advantages to working remotely!

A trend widely followed internationally
Internationally as well, the COVID-19 pandemic has convinced many companies to extensively adopt remote work. The digital giant Google, for example, has implemented widespread remote work until summer 2021 in Europe, the US, Brazil, and India. In May 2020, the social media king Facebook also announced its intention to have half of its employees working from home permanently within the next five to ten years.

While this change in working mode allows many companies to navigate through the crisis, it nevertheless requires equipping employees accordingly with suitable computers and software.
