Remote Work Round-Up
Nov. 30 2017
For the 1.7 million Canadians working remotely at least once a week, Andrew Tischler is about completely change the game for telecommuters in Toronto- and he's doing it from the ground up.
Tischler is building the first communal workspace condominium- featuring apartments with a built in communal workspace and all the bells and whistles anyone could ever want from an office.
"The 38-story, 541-unit condo development in Toronto's downtown core will offer a collaborative workspace that will be open 24 hours a day, included in the building's maintenance fees. It will provide users with access to tables, desks, office supplies, AV equipment and meeting spaces."
"The average condo unit in downtown Toronto doesn't offer a lot of work space," says Mr. Virani, with many units in the 500-to-600-square-foot range. He says having a communal office area where you live means owners who want to work remotely won't have to look for places like coffee shops or free space in the lobby of a condo building."
If you'd choose a condo with a communal workspace over a gym (although they have one of those too) you're not alone. The development is expected to be completed in two years, and is already sold out!!

Ah, the dreaded PIP.
Performance improvement plans (PIPs) can feel scary. They have a (not entirely unearned) reputation for being the first step on the road to an eventual firing. And sometimes managers do implement PIPs solely to appease HR by ensuring that they made every last effort to make a given employee successful before terminating that employee.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
