Feeding the Elephant While the Circus is Closing


There is no doubt that the coronavirus is lending ample perspective to agencies that are forced to make the dramatic leap from traditional office to remote work. In recent years, work-from-home policies have expanded and advanced, and a growing number of professionals are mobile. They know how to work from home and are able to when necessary.

As our nation grinds to a standstill due to COVID-19, many agencies are burdened with tremendous overhead in terms of space and equipment that sits idle. Now is the ideal time to reconsider plans for the future that are financially efficient and attract today’s mobile workforce.
