Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Nicholas Bloom | Econofact
Despite concerns at the outset of the pandemic, working from home had a positive impact on productivity. Evidence from SWAA finds that hybrid working from home increases average productivity by about five percent. In fact, the productivity gains seem to be rising as companies and employees learn how to take advantage of remote work opportunities.

Before the pandemic, more than four million Americans suffered through a daily work commute of more than 90 minutes. Help is on the way.
Meredith Turits | BBC
Millions of workers are on the hunt for remote jobs. But there may not be enough flexible positions for all of them.
Consider this: You’ve got a headache and a runny nose. You also have a job and your colleagues count on you to turn up. What do you do? You decide to work through it and hope no one notices you are a bit less chatty.
This is presenteeism, or working while sick. It’s both a “public health hazard” and a “worldwide phenomenon.”
Sarah Kessler | The New York Times
Some companies that hired remote workers during the pandemic say going back to the office isn’t an option.
Adrian Wooldridge | Bloomberg
The deepening clash between knowledge workers and companies is more than just a struggle over commuting and convenience. It is a clash over the meaning of work.
