During the past eight months with COVID-19, several studies already concluded that working from home doesn´t affect or reduce global office employee´s workflow and efficiency.     

According to a recent survey from the Norwegian Institute of Transport Economics, 74% of home-working Oslo office employees estimate that they are just as efficient or more behind their desktops in their private home as they are at the office. 

And similar studies among business leaders confirm that the corona-created homework wave has left very positive impressions and results in terms of their employees' loyalty and productivity.
