In 2015, it was 3.9 million. This represents an annual increase below 0.5%. Glacial-pace – right! The COVID-19 crisis has changed everything. Within a few short weeks, tens of millions of employees in organizations large and small suddenly became remote workers, leading Time Magazine to label it ‘the world’s largest work-from-home experiment’.

I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
