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.

I thought about writing this blog piece like one of those quizzes that used to be on the back pages of Seventeen and Cosmo where each question would offer several answers of varying point levels and you'd pick one answer per question, tally up your points at the end, and match your score to one of several possible results.
