The Channel's Role In Supporting Remote Work
Furthermore, the remote work model gives businesses the ability to hire from an expanded talent pool and decrease office space and overhead costs. Now that many businesses have successfully completed a remote work model proof-of-concept, Upwork research shows that as many as 40.7 million or 28 percent of full-time American professionals will be fully remote by 2026.

Now that working from home will be permanent, at least part-time, for professionals, businesses are turning to value-added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to help them implement technology that supports efficient operations and a secure IT environment.
