Remote Work Round-Up

October 26, 2017

Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin mega-empire and all around badass dude, has never been one to shy away from sharing his opinion. And boy, are we glad he did this time around. Why? Well, as Branson recently stated to CNN's Boss Files with Poppy Harlow podcast: to working parents seeking more time with their children, work from home.

(Note: even more impressive, notice how he said parents and not mothers).

Branson explains:

"I'm a great believer in people working from home. I encourage our staff if they want to work from home...I lived in a houseboat when my kids were young," he recalls. "I was building Virgin. They were fooling around. I changed a nappy and I'd be on the phone. So I suspect I'll see more of my kids and family than almost any father....the most important, in the end in life, is your family and friends."

And who wouldn't want to hear a statement like that come out of their bosses mouth?

Branson goes on to give an update into his intended foray into space, which, after a 2014 accident of a test space shuttle, has unfortunately been grounded. But Branson expects to be gliding through the milky way within the next 6 months or so. Anyone care to join him?

If your boss is not as cool as the illustrious Richard Branson, or at least not as permissive as it pertains to working from home (being that cool is certainly hard to beat), take a look below at some of our open remote opportunities. For even more available roles, head over to our Jobs page.

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.


Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:


The Workplace of the Future: How Companies Can Plan for The Ever-Changing

As vaccination numbers climb and some—though not all—of our collective paranoia begins to dissipate, businesses are starting to reopen. Employers face a key decision: how will they respond?
