After the 2020 pandemic tipped our traditional way of work on its head, companies scrambled to support fully remote workers. But as the vaccine roll-out continues, many organizations are welcoming workers back to the office. However, that doesn’t mean all companies are planning to go back to exactly the same way things were before. Some companies, like Nationwide and VMware, have announced their decision to stay “remote first” for the long-term, while others are looking at flex solutions like 2 days in office and 3 days home — or one week in office and the next week home. The implications for IT and ITSec departments is that they must prepare to support fully or partially remote workers well into the future.
