Today, however, thestudy opinions around WFH aremoving in positivedirection. As COVID-

19 cases have flooded, so have the number of organizations expecting that their employees actually adapt to WFH. Yet, WFH doesn't work for everybody, or for all parts of an organization. The study also focuses on the pros and cons of WFH. It also states that the pandemic isn't over at this point and a few nations are seeing an ascent in contaminations, so we should be cautious and stay adaptable in 2021.
