The Status Of The World

I joined The Palmer Group online discussions sessions just when we were all forced to stay home because of the pandemic.


The Palmer Group works on digital transformation, marketing, strategy, data science, AI and Machine Learning with Fortune 500 companies.


They recently polled 1,123 remote workers about how they feel about working from home. They got some interesting results. I thought I would share them with you because I’m sure you are wondering if your family is in sync with the rest of the world.
