On 31 December 2020, the Brexit transition period officially ended and the UK left the EU. The UK Government immediately announced that it had taken “back control of their money, their borders, their laws, and their waters”. The “Vote Leave” campaign, launched together with the 2016 referendum, suggested that immigration into the United Kingdom was out of control and declared that “the only way to take back control of immigration [was] to Vote Leave.”

This implies the introduction and adoption of worldwide technological advancements, with a focus on online collaboration and communication platforms. This has made this trend possible and is playing a crucial role in its further development.
Before the pandemic, an increasing number of people were already working remotely at least on a part-time basis. A pre-pandemic survey of over 3,500 remote workers from around the world also showed that 98 percent of remote workers wanted to continue to work remotely.
