    This week, we look at the reality many businesses around the world were forced to confront when lockdowns to limit the spread of COVID-19 were instituted. Working from home was a concept some companies in France had toyed with in the past, but now they had little choice. Some 40 percent of employees worked from home at the height of the pandemic.
