The Conversation

When the COVID -19 pandemic broke out in March 2020, millions of Canadians switched from working in a central office to working from home.

Since then, some companies have abandoned remote work altogether, opting for mandatory in-office work during COVID -19, while others see remote work as a way to keep their teams connected and productive.

In most cases, it is up to the CEO or other company executives to decide whether to allow employees to work remotely during a pandemic.

To find out what Canada’s top CEOs think about remote work, I analyzed the language they use in their earnings releases to investors and analysts.
