Companies are just now starting to figure out remote work

As we move deeper into the pandemic, companies are realizing that the remote work habits that are de facto today will likely persist to become a major part of the way they work in the post-COVID world.

As the president of a company that offers business simulations, I’ve witnessed firsthand how much has changed in the last five or so years to make these strategically valuable tools more accessible. Here’s how to determine if a business simulation is the right fit for you and your company.
