Remote Work Round-Up

August 24, 2017

Would working from an office, even part-time, be more appealing if your workspace was designed as a home away from home?

Some companies are betting on it, says Ariel Parrella-Aureli in a recent post on, driven by feedback from millennials. She writes:

"Millennials are one group pushing for flexible work hours and remote work access, according to HR experts and millennials themselves...Being constantly plugged into social media and computers for work, office spaces no longer need to be so segmented and traditional, which younger generations know well. These office spaces are similar to working from home and allow flexibility in work schedules and boost engagement and creativity, studies show. "

Airbnb is one major brand that has latched onto this new way of thinking. Parrella-Aurelli shares:

"Airbnb's office is said to be like entering someone's house; creative homey nooks with hanging lights, colored walls and antique portraits and memorabilia for private concentration, standing-only desk cubicles or large sleek lounges with wall plants and dog-friendly spaces has the company receiving rave reviews for its space.

Mixed with a modern office setting of ample wooden tables for conferences, meetings and productive vibes...modern spaces like these are heading toward a future where the work-life balance will be less office space and more working from home. These spaces are acting as a 'second home' while losing the title of a typical 'office.'"

How I Took Action Against Anti-Asian Racism– At Work and In My Personal Life

If you've been paying attention to the news recently, you likely have noticed a sharp rise in Anti-Asian racism. Members of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities have been vocal in bringing awareness to the heightened racial discrimination they have faced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in some cases, have had tragic consequences.

If you are not a member of the Asian-American community, you might feel powerless– as if you have no say in the matter. It's easy to believe that your actions aren't effective and cannot lend support to your colleagues and friends from the Asian-American community. But that is not the case– in reality, there are a number of actions you can take against Asian hate that can have real impact, in both your professional and personal life.
