A year after the world went into some form of lockdown or another, there are very few places where things are completely “back to normal”. All around the world, enterprises continue to orchestrate large portions of their workforces remotely. Matt Mullenweg, CEO of Automattic (the company behind WordPress, a fully remote-native company for more than 15 years) even believes that, “…90% of all the companies that are going to be changing the course of the world are going to function (in distributed teams). They will evolve to be distributed first, or they’ll be replaced by those that are.”

This worldwide, involuntary experiment with working from home is likely to have a transformative effect on the modern office - even when the pandemic has passed - and some have suggested that, by 2030, many of us won’t be coming into the office at all. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together research, data and insights from companies like Deloitte, McKinsey, RingCentral and We Work Remotely, as well as from our own experiences this year (I’m writing this in my pyjamas at two in the afternoon and I’ve never been happier or more productive) to bring you our Top 10 best practices (for companies and their employees) when working from home.
