Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
To make sense of this journey — from a company’s cautious exploration of remote possibilities to a fully realized distributed experience — I like to think of how it plays out through the concept of levels of distributed work, which I modeled after self-driving car levels of autonomy.

Remote training occurs when the trainer and trainee are separated by time and location, and need to conduct learning virtually instead of in a physical office setting. Remote learning can be asynchronous, thus not constrained by time, or it can occur at set-times which would make it synchronous remote learning. This flexibility within remote learning offers major benefits for both the company and employees.
In this article we’ll discuss how to decide if remote training is right for you, tips to help execute remote training, and tools you can use to implement your programs.

During a period of confinement and physical distancing, telecommuting has enabled some workers to carry out their usual tasks from home.
But remote work can also be a source of socioeconomic inequality for workers in many different ways. These are related to the job sector and employers, as well as to the loss of the benefits associated with remote work.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey emailed employees on Tuesday telling them that they’d be allowed to work from home permanently, even after the coronavirus pandemic lockdown passes. Some jobs that require physical presence, such as maintaining servers, will still require employees to come in.

The surreal experience of flying during a pandemic, and the false promise of a return to normal.
I’ve landed in Hong Kong after flying from Paris CDG, via London Heathrow. I now have to wait ~8 hours before I get my #COVID19 test results and thus have ample time to tweet about my experience.
Event: Remote Work: The Future Is Now! is a free online community event featuring engineers from Apple, Auth0, and Automattic that will take place today, May 14, at 7pm EST.
First, remote work means you can work from home.
Then, remote work means you can work from anywhere.
And then, remote work means you can hire from anywhere.
