During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, remote workforce is keep increasing all over the world.

SAP Qualtrics has developed Remote+On-site Work Pulse survey, which is an automated feedback solution giving employers the insights of their remote teams and understanding their needs during this uncertain time. i.e. How employees are doing during this pandemic situation?
