The rise of remote work will impact many areas. Before the pandemic, remote work opportunities in well-paying jobs were just over 3%. Today it is at 15%.

The 2021 edition of Owl Labs’ State of Remote Work Report found that 90% of the 2,050 full-time employees who participated in remote work said they were equally, if not more, productive. from a distance. 84% said working remotely after the pandemic would make them happier. Most were even willing to take a pay cut.
Ultimately, multiple reports found that hybrid working conditions — with freedoms based on job completion — were what respondents were most satisfied with when it came to their mental health, happiness, and productivity. .
Employees have left companies in droves over the last twelve months – across all sectors – due to companies’ reluctance to shift their collective thinking process on working conditions.
With changing societal conditions, media budgets are distributed very differently depending on the pre-pandemic periods.
