We Are Predicting That European Companies Instruct Employers To Mandate Work From Home During The Winter

Our prediction is that the EU Commission and quite a few European Union Nation States including the UK will mandate a Work From Home Policy for Employers in their country in order to reduce energy consumption.

Think about all the gas that will be saved on the commute to and from the office.

What about all of the energy used to heat and light those offices?
