As a res­ult of the COV­ID-19 pan­dem­ic and meas­ures put in place in re­sponse, coun­tries around the world – in­clud­ing the Czech Re­pub­lic – have ad­op­ted new in­nov­a­tions in the area of em­ploy­ment in a bid to keep their work­ers safe and pro­duct­ive. One such in­nov­a­tion is work from home.More than a year after the pan­dem­ic began, home-of­fice work has proven so ef­fect­ive, many be­lieve it will be­come a fix­ture of our post-pan­dem­ic fu­ture.
