How Rising Gas Prices are Fueling Remote Work
COVID-19 necessitated one of the largest shifts in the nature of work that we had seen in decades. Overnight, businesses went from operating primarily out of central office locations to working remotely.
Concerns about the health and well-being of employees drove this decision from business leaders. However, as the effects of the pandemic have waned, a new opponent to in-office work has entered the arena: gas prices.
