Remote working predictions, VMware ed.

Pre-pandemic, Gelsinger said about 20% of VMware’s staff worked remotely. Even after companies return to the “new normal,” Gelsinger said he expects more than 50% of VMware employees will work remotely more than half of the time. “It’s going to be one of those game changing kind of things,” he said. “I’m going to have more access to talent, less carbon footprint. So we believe that we’re going to see a step function, increase in the amount of distributed workforce for the world. Period. Also, education. Also, telemedicine. Every one of these categories, you’re going to say it’s just better this way.”
