A recent McKinsey report published in Feb 2021 has found that advanced nation workforces could dedicate 28 to 30 percent of the time to working remotely without losing productivity.
It is clear that from recent studies published by the Office for National Statistics (2021) both businesses and individuals preferred a "hybrid" working approach and a large proportion (36%) of those currently homeworking thought they would spend the majority or all their time homeworking in the future. The demand on the modern manager to mange remote teams has grown since the COVID-19 Pandemic and is likely to grow in the future
