Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Instead working remotely has become almost normal, except to corporate leaders who prefer portraying it as “working from home” as if you need to be grateful for the (temporary) perk. This patronizing butts-in-seats mentality assumes that you’re not, you’re working from home. Perhaps you’re really doing laundry or running errands, but not actually “working”. This ignores the fact that work is already remote by nature when it happens on the Internet. Large organizations effectively have remote offices. They coordinate work across cities and countries. Remote work is here, it’s just not evenly distributed.

Before the pandemic, if you woke up with a runny nose or a tickle in your throat, it was a simple enough decision to stay home and avoid infecting your co-workers. Now, as more Americans work from home, sick days are disappearing.
Kathryn Dill | The Wall Street Journal
The flexibility of remote work doesn’t have to come at the expense of your current compensation.
Henry Shapiro | Fast Company
So in the era of remote work, what kinds of perks should employers be offering to their employees? The answer is simple: Let them do their jobs well, go home, and give them the space they need to build their own lives outside of work.
Allen Wengert | Binghamton University
People who are both trustworthy and competent are most sought after, according to Binghamton University School of Management research.

The “Euro Night Sprinter” map is utopian, but Europe’s rail future could look a lot like it.
