Toptal, the world’s largest fully remote company, announced a new consulting service to help organizations build and sustain robust remote work environments. Since its inception in 2010, and today with over 4,000 people working remotely, Toptal has been a fully remote company and has never operated from a physical location. The company’s Remote Work Solutions consulting practice has been created to help companies transition to lasting remote work solutions.

Taso Du Val, Toptal’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Remote Work Solutions practice applies the experience and practical know-how accumulated over a decade of working only as a fully remote company. The events of recent months have forced every organization to evaluate how they operate independently of a physical office. For those that are now working on how to make this permanent, Toptal’s Remote Work Solutions can help make that transition lasting and more integrated.”
The company, which provides highly-skilled freelance talent to organizations large and small, is providing specialist expertise across the two principal areas defining the success of a transition to remote working: People and Operations, and Technology and Tools.

The survey found that 83% of companies in professional services (and 77% of all organizations) expect an increase in full-time employees working remotely at least three days per week, even a year after the pandemic substantially subsides. Moreover, including more remote work was named as their organization’s #1 most significant change in the recovery phase.
