Remote Work Round-Up

August 17, 2017

Working from home has captured much media attention as of late, as more employees are requesting the ability to do their duties remotely, and many companies are complying.

But according to a recent write-up on The Conversation by Agustin Chevez and DJ Huppatz, while having a home office may seem like a recent trend, it can actually be traced back several centuries to the advent of the office itself. Offices began appearing in Italy during medieval times, mostly used for prestige or religious purposes. And as such - the vast majority of people worked from home. That all began to change in the 17th century.

The authors write, "Lawyers, civil servants and other new professionals began to work from offices in Amsterdam, London and Paris. This led to a cultural distinction between the office, associated with work, and the home, associated with comfort, privacy and intimacy."

Yet some powerful figures purposely chose to work from the serenity found at home. The Rothschild family conducted all banking matters from their domestic base to make clients feel more relaxed, while Hugh Hefner originally ran his Playboy enterprise from his bed.

Technologies such as the telegraph, telephone and word processors brought us into modern work culture, transforming it so vastly via the abundance and ease of digital connectivity, that today, the end of the office could be a reality.

How Zapier Director of Compensation Jocelyne Wright-McLemore Is Tackling Imposter Syndrome as a Black Woman in HR

Jocelyne Wright-McLemore has a sticky note that she looks at every day: "I'm overqualified and I can do this."

Zapier's Director of Compensation put that sticky note up shortly after she rolled out a big new project at the online automation company and received some critical feedback on it. Though the criticism came from a tiny portion of her audience and the project was a success overall, hearing it brought back some of the self-doubt and imposter syndrome that she faced earlier in her career.
