Employees are not confined to static locations as they once were. In fact, according to the Global Business Travel Association, international business travel spend has doubled in the last 15 years and is projected to reach $1.6 trillion by 2020. Additionally, whether you call it telecommuting, distributed work, mobile work, remote work, smart working, or work shifting, the number of employees in alternate work environments is growing exponentially -- some statistics reflect more than 140% increase in less than 10 years. The World Economic Forum called flexible work, “one of the biggest drivers of transformation” in the workplace, while Gallop reported in 2017 that 43 percent of employed Americans said they spent at least some time working remotely.
