DescriptionDuring this past year many companies and universities had to temporarily shift to working remotely and some of them found it beneficial and decided to adopt the new ways. This shift has even allowed international employees and students to stay in their home countries and expanded the potential outreach for companies. However, working and studying from abroad has its own issues due to visas, payments and taxes, as well as the difficulties around scheduling hours for project meetings and classes, group collaborations, and the lack of water-cooler conversations.
In this session we would like to reflect on this new experience, both from the perspective of the quality of content produced and the quality of life of employees and students.
