This article examines the potential disadvantages of fully remote work, including decreased collaboration and productivity, an unclear work/life balance, and potential communication problems. Despite initial excitement from companies and workers who embraced remote work, a recent survey indicated that 69 percent of companies who experienced long-term remote work experienced what can become permanent obstacles. The chief among them include collaboration, having a distinct work/life balance, and communication problems.

Companies are beginning to recognize that the most successful work arrangements are hybrid in-person/remote models.
