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

First things first, let’s define what a Head of Remote is responsible for and how they fit into an organization that is adopting workplace flexibility long-term. It may feel safe in assuming that this role oversees the virtual portion of a workforce (as the title would suggest). However, the objectives are a bit more complex than that.

Second, it’s hard to overstate the positive shock that remote work works. Remote work isn’t perfect, there are problems, but virtually every CEO I’ve talked to over the last year marvels at how well it works. And remote work worked under the extreme duress of a pandemic, with all of the human impact of lockdowns and children unable to go to school and people being unable to see their friends and extended families. It will work even better out of COVID. Companies of all shapes, sizes, and descriptions are retooling their assumptions on geographic footprint, where jobs are located, where employees are located, how offices are configured, and if there should be offices at all.

There are more remote jobs than ever. That doesn’t mean you’ll get one.

Disco Corp., a Japanese maker of semiconductor equipment, has a novel approach to remote work — those who choose to stay home pay the colleagues who brave the commute to show up in the office.
Chip Cutter, Kathryn Dill | The Wall Street Journal
“Remote is going to be the new signing bonus,” he says. “Instead of dangling, ‘We’ll give you $10,000 if you sign for this job,’ it’ll be: ‘Instead of having to commute 35 minutes every day, go to work, and get in your car and drive 35 minutes home, you can work from your home office all the time.'”
Claire Cain Miller | The New York Times
For some, the office even stifles creativity. As the pandemic eases in the U.S., a few companies seek to reimagine what work might look like.

Many executives are falling victim to a number of well-known psychological biases in their push to end remote working.
