Covid-19 brings in the biggest workforce to experience the longest period in history for working from home. Pre-COVID, the majority of financial services companies already have flexible work policy in place. However, this largest working from home experience inspires everyone to rethink the meaning of work-life balance.
No doubt, after experiencing a proper working from home time, some of us find the benefits from it. For example, some of the bankers are enjoying saving extra time from the commute, some of the parents are cherishing the moment to witness their kids' growing up milestones.
