In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, professionals around the globe were forced to abruptly change the way they work and transition, to the extent possible, toward remote work arrangements.
As a result, remote work has received wide coverage during 2020. The current study aims to investigate this topic from a new angle: that of its feasibility according to the skills required in every job.
The results of this study conducted on over ten thousand skills and nearly three thousand jobs show that out of all technical skills, about half correspond to tasks that can be done at least partly from home.
We expect the approach presented in this study to bring new perspectives on the remote work practice. Companies can use this remote work methodology and the corresponding insights to address challenges ranging from short-term crisis situations to the long-term planning of their organizational design.
