Communication and Technology in the Workplace

by Kristen HohmanKim DeRose | Thursday, Feb 20, 2020 | Remote Work

Working remotely may sound like a dream to some employees. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), more than 26 million Americans (16% of the total workforce) now work remotely at least part of the time, an increase of 115% between 2005 and 2015. At Boxboat, we’ve embraced the digital life, with a remote-first approach to both our internal team and as a service provider.
