IT Pro 20/20: Is this the end of the remote work dream?

Welcome to issue 20 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a quick, easy-to-read package.

However some organisations, across both the public and private spheres, are questioning the validity of paying all employees equally.
