To say Covid-19 has changed the world dramatically would be the understatement of the century. Almost every aspect of people's day-to-day lives has been turned upside down because of the virus.

At the same time, people all over the world are forging a path forward and creating a "new normal," particularly when it comes to the way they work and conduct business. Remote work went mainstream almost instantly because of the pandemic.
