Remote Work Round-Up

October 12, 2017

Would you give up working remotely if your office space more closely resembled your home-base? As more companies look to modernize, those types of offerings are on the horizon - or already here.

According to Steve Lohr at The New York TimesThe New York Times, traditional companies such as General Electric, Microsoft and IBM are following in the footsteps of more contemporary brands such as Facebook and Google by asking for forgiveness for the full-fledged launch into cramped, crowded open-concept workplaces. And it's just in time for IBM, after calling back all their remote workers back to their HQ homestead earlier this year.

So, what do these new office spaces like? Lohr writes:

"The new model is largely open, but not entirely. Under the revised thinking, breaking down walls to bring people together is good, but so are 'team spaces' and standing tables, comfortable couches and movable walls.

Privacy is also good, particularly for tasks that require intense concentration, the thinking goes. That doesn't mean a return to the glory days of private offices, but it does mean workers have more space and more places to seek solitude than in the neo-Dickensian workbench settings. The new designs often include 'isolation rooms,' soundproof phone booths, and even lounges where technology is forbidden."

Will meditation rooms on every floor bring you back into the building? Let us know on Twitter: @powertofly.

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.
