Long Island businesses expect telecommuting to last longer than the coronavirus pandemic, according to Newsday. Only four of 28 businesses surveyed predicted that they will return to full-time office-based working even after the coronavirus is no longer a concern. The majority said they prefer a “hybrid” model in which employees have some choice to work from home or go into an office. Part of the appeal of remote work is that it saves employees the trouble of commuting, something that could increase productivity and make employees happier. But critics say remote working will isolate workers and dehumanize businesses. [Newsday]
