Remote work is here to stay. Post-pandemic, many companies will let employees work remotely some or all of the time.
To support those dispersed workers, a new executive position is emerging: The head of remote. That person spearheads keeping remote workers engaged, encouraging them to collaborate, while designing perks and flexibility tailored to their needs. Another goal: replicate the spontaneous connections that happen at in-person offices – in other words, create a virtual water cooler.
