More than one year into the pandemic, and professionals across the globe have seamlessly eased into the new normal of remote working. Rather than WFH (work from home), WFA (work from anywhere) is the new norm and is expected to be the future of workplaces. This has permanently altered our professional and personal lives and enabled us to literally WFA – be it an office cubicle, your kitchen counter, your friend’s house, the beaches, or even the hills.
