“Industries such as finance, insurance and most professional consulting could easily adopt a remote work model with the right IT system in place. Even industries like manufacturing can automate chain supply processes more efficiently, for example, so that more employees can manage tasks from any computer. Similarly, all admin jobs can easily be streamlined through better ticketing automation, with one centralized hub to connect across all departments to offer flawless customer service. Having worked with small to Fortune 500 companies along the years, we have found that education, healthcare, manufacturing and HR are the most convertible sectors towards remote or hybrid work models.”
