This week on Under the Radar, we present a special encore edition of one of our favorite segments from the year.
If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that a lot of people love working remotely. Sure, many people might miss in-person meetings and look forward to hallway chats again. But others appreciate the flexibility that remote work provides, and they don’t want to give that up.
Major companies like Facebook, Twitter and Spotify, have embraced this mentality and are allowing employees to work remotely, permanently. But some businesses are calling their employees back into the office, or planning to do so in the new year.
How many are willing to quit their jobs — maybe even move out of town or out of state — to find permanent remote work?
