Virtual. Remote. What’s the difference?

virtual organization is one where employees engage in a limited physical corporate office presence, connecting remotely via technology.

remote job is one where an employee works at other locations often returning to a corporate office.

Although the terms virtual and remote are often used interchangeably, virtual work happens through teams or individuals operating at a distance with some degree of self-direction and autonomy (Burma, 2014; Caillier, 2013; McCann & Kohntopp, 2019).
