Episode 3
This year many companies were forced to come to terms with the reality that work can happen outside the 4-walls of the office. 

This forced acceleration and adoption of remote work has had it’s challenges - with the blurred separation of home and work leading to burnout. But even with the promise of vaccines on the horizon in the coming year, there is definitely no going back to the way things used to be. 

If the future of work is distributed -- giving employees the choice to work from anywhere -- how can we ensure that what we're creating is inclusive and sustainable? And what role will technology play?
