Prior to the global pandemic, about 7.9% of the world’s workforce worked remotely, mostly from home. The latest pandemic estimates show 34% to 60% of workers in the US are working from home. We see similar increases across the world.

We also discovered eight key leadership skills that differentiated these leaders who excelled from those who were less successful.
