Work environment following the pandemic: ‘Republic of the remote’ v. return to the office...and everything in between Where will outsourcing and digitization take our sector next? Will a ‘build back better’ world lead to a fresh raft of cross-border regulation or can we anticipate a post-Brexit downswing in red tape?
