Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.

Change happens slowly, then all at once.
The forces that enable working in a distributed fashion have been in motion for decades, and if you talk to anyone who was working in technology in the ’60s and ’70s they expected this to happen much sooner. Stephan Wolfram has been a remote CEO for 28 years. Automattic has been distributed-first for 15 years.

Work From Anywhere may not save a company any money whatsoever. What was once large office complexes may be a handful of smaller venues, with travel and food budgets that will more than make up for any real estate cost savings. This new workplace flexibility is not about saving money, nor long-term social distancing. In the end, it’s an investment in employee well-being, productivity, and ultimately, profitability.

…cost of living adjustments (COLAs) are deeply unfair and a bad practice. People doing the same jobs and providing the same value should be paid the same.
German-language paper Tages-Anzeiger reports that Switzerland’s top court has ruled that employers are required to contribute to employees’ rent payments if they are expected to work from home.

Onboarding at a new company can be a weird thing. Besides the very corporate-sounding name itself (that makes some of us think “waterboarding”), there are some odd ways they try to “teach” the new employees.

In the current climate it appears remote working will be more common. So where would you want to move too? Or would you become a nomad? Or is current home, perfect?

A lot has changed about air travel since it went mainstream in the 1930s. On-board smoking, free-flowing booze, and five-star meals have given way to baggage fees, cramped seats, and mystery meat. It ain’t all bad, though — flying is also more safe, affordable and accessible than ever before.
Through all this change, one thing has stayed the same — the software that manages it all.

I was struggling with quarantine — until I found the polar explorers.
