Nice write up. Remote work can be more productive because I can save an average 2-3 hours a day for commute.
How is remote work normally agree upon?
Does it usually transition from full time office into partial remote than to full time remote, after mutual trust is earned?
In my current role, I worked full-time in the office first. It was widely known I was moving countries at the end of that year and I had assumed I'd have to leave the company before they offered to support me remotely.
This meant that through circumstance I already had quite a bank of trust built up so my employers were able to trust that I could successfully work remotely.
If you're not in that situation - you will have to find other ways to build that trust. I'd start with one day a week and build on it from there.
