Remote Work Round-Up – June 9, 2017

Though tech giants such as IBM and HPE have recently come forward to question the benefits of working remotely and call all employees back to the IRL office, other corporations are heading in the opposite direction, embracing flexible schedules for their employees.


The Wall Street Journal showcased Dell this week, in a piece called "Why Remote Work Can't Be Stopped". Writer Christopher Mims reports that while only 17% of Dell's workforce is authorized to work outside of the office, 58% noted that they work remotely at least one day a week. Dell's response: Great!

Steve Price, chief human resources officer at Dell, was pleased by this development. Dell set a goal in 2013 to have half of their employees working from wherever they're most productive by 2020. Looks like they've made it, and well ahead of schedule.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

Tips from SeatGeek's Anuja Chavan

When Anuja Chaven turns on a fan in her house in Jersey City, she can't help but think about how every piece of it works.

What These Companies Are Doing to Celebrate Juneteenth 2021

*Updated on June 17th, 2021 to reflect Juneteenth officially being named a Federal Holiday in the U.S.*

Juneteenth has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s, but in recent years (particularly in response to global protests over police brutality and the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other Black Americans), there has been a surge in interest in the day that celebrates freedom.

Before it became an official federal holiday, many businesses shifted toward marking June 19th as an annual company holiday, creating different initiatives around the holiday and offering employees opportunities to learn, reflect, and take action toward racial equality.
