Remote Working: Coronavirus Could Cause a Permanent Shift to Home Working

The Covid pandemic could result in the permanent move to remote working for many people, as companies are forced to encourage home working to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

After being forced to set-up a home office and get used to using cloud remote working tools, employees will be reluctant to return to commuting to the office 5 days a week and asking if they need to do this. This might be an opportunity for huge change in the way we work.

Women In Tech

Further to National Women’s Day on the 8th March, RWA delves into statistics to find that women are a minority in modern day tech. Despite the fact that women have always been instrumental in technology development, according to a survey by PwC, only 15% of employees in STEM roles in the UK are women and only 3% of females say that a career in tech is their first choice.
