Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Sean Illing | Vox
You might call the last year or so a remote work revolution, but that’s not quite right. For one thing, remote work wasn’t an option for most of the country. But even for the fortunate people who were able to work from home, what they were doing wasn’t really working. It’s more like a panicked compromise forged under the chaos of a national emergency.
Mark Crowley | Fast Company
Despite how popular the idea of working from home permanently has become for many people today, I’ve come to believe that working remotely full-time is detrimental to human well-being, not to mention organizational success. Without working some days each week in the office—when everyone else is there too—the harm to all of us is far greater than we might ever imagine. Here’s why.
Ed Zitron | Where's Your Ed At?
As a society we have rejected the idea that people need to be trained or mentored because it’s expensive and time-consuming to do so. We do not invest in young workers - as I wrote in the Atlantic, America disrespects entry-level workers, leaving them bereft of training or mentorship, expecting them to work it out from HR documents or orders from the manager. The reason that companies are not making formal plans to adapt schedules or workflows for remote work is because they barely make formal plans to adapt schedules for in the office - almost everything is done based on the arbitrary views of a manager or VP that does not do the actual job.
Sheryl Stillman | WIRED
Like an all-you-can-eat-buffet (before the coronavirus,) there are many definitions of “hybrid,” but it generally means an employer requires a time and place for face-to-face interaction, no matter how little, throughout the year. Although it’s easy to forget that remote employees have been around for decades, most businesses are still figuring out what this new normal means for staff.
Charlie Brown | An Injustice!
I’m optimistic by nature and truly believe we can build a world where remote workers and local communities live alongside one another rather than battle against each other. It begins with injecting nuance into the conversation. I know, nuance doesn’t create viral content.
Ed Caesar | The New Yorker
The joys—and absurdities—of finding oneself abandoned in a desolate landscape.
