On the last Thursday in June each year we celebrate National Work From Home Day. This year it is on June 25. It is a chance to recognize the technological and cultural evolutions that allow us to be as productive anywhere in the world as we are in the office.
For years, working at home has been the purview of certain types of jobs, or saved as a bonus to reward employees while the rest of us battled with the daily commute. Now, however, the tools exist so that nearly any office job can be done at home without a loss of productivity.
2020 has been the ultimate test of this technology and we have seen the resilience and ingenuity of those who had to work from home for several months. Today, we celebrate those achievements and applaud all those who kept things moving from their home offices.
