Everything I said about remote working during a pandemic still stand, but remote work is certainly gaining momentum in at least some of the companies. TCS, an Indian service company employing 0.5 million people have announced that 75% of their workforce will be going remote by 2025. FYI has published a report analysing The Future of Remote Work estimating by 2025, 70% of the workforce will work remotely at least five days in a month. In other news, Uber CTO is leaving the company and they might lay off 20% of their workforce.
