With COVID-19 throwing our entire world (literally) for a very-much-unanticipated loop, all indications are showing that working from home is here to stay, at least in some form. Tech behemoths like Twitter, Square, and even Facebook have in recent months announced plans to allow employees to continue to work from home even after the Coronavirus pandemic is behind us.
