Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
The return to the office could be the real reason for the slump in productivity. Here’s the data to prove it
Gleb Tsipursky | Fortune
Forcing employees to come to the office under the threat of discipline leads to disengagement, fear, and distrust, according to the director of research and strategy for workplace management at Gallup Ben Wigert,. Gallup finds that “the optimal engagement boost occurs when employees spend 60% to 80% of their time–or three to four days in a five-day workweek–working off-site.”
Julia Hobsbawm | Fortune
The Nowhere Office is here and the 4-day workweek could be next.
Te-Ping Chen | The Wall Street Journal
To build better companies, leaders need to experiment more, quit ‘living in fear of opening Pandora’s box,’ says Wharton management professor Adam Grant.
Nick Kolakowski | Dice
But tech professionals generally dislike the idea of returning to the office five days per week. While some executives may believe that full-time office work will boost productivity and even team camaraderie, they’ll have to be careful about the impact on morale—and retention.
Nearly a third of euro zone workers want to work from home more frequently than their employer allows them to, and are willing to change jobs to be able to do so, a European Central Bank study showed on Wednesday.
Lydia Smith | Yahoo Finance
While some people prefer to work from a home office or a cafe, some are making the most of their autonomy and choosing more exotic locations.
“Hush trips” see employees do their job from a different country while their employers think they’re working at home.
Cameron Sperance | The Points Guy
The average daily rate of an Airbnb rental is 36% higher today than it was in 2019, the company’s chief financial officer, Dave Stephenson, said on an investor call this week. However, company leaders defended the rise in prices by claiming vacation rentals still offer travelers far more value compared to a hotel room.
