I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

A few weeks ago the American Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works held a full committee hearing entitled, Lessons Learned from Remote Working during COVID-19: Can the Government Save Money Through Maximizing Efficient Use of Leased Space?

This is a very important conversation for everyone to have on this particular topic, given what we now know about remote work. You will find the insights in this hearing most insightful.

The remote work genie is truly out the bottle and organizations can save billions of $ by embracing and formalizing flexibility and remote working.
