About

Founded in 2021, Remote Report covers the business of the remote work industry, from tech players battling over how we communicate to real-time lessons learned by Fortune 500 companies transitioning to a home-based work environment. Remote Report strives to provide both timely coverage and deep-dive reporting on the companies, leaders, funders, workers and laws transforming the globe through remote work.
