Working from home became de rigeur during the pandemic and it has widespread benefits. People have been able to work from the comfort of their own homes while complying with Covid-19 restrictions.

Remote-first also meant companies could widen the net and hire abroad, effectively “pulling up global wages in developing markets in ways that would have been very surprising only a few years ago” according to Jeremy Johnson, CEO of software developer recruitment company Andela. 

However, women have been impacted disproportionately. Fifty four million women left the global workforce in 2020 during the pandemic says Kristin Luck, president of not for profit business analytics organisation ESOMAR.

Jeremy Johnson and Kristin Luck were in conversation with Euronews journalist Pascale Davies on the Remote stage at Web Summit 2021.
