Remote Work Round-Up

November 2, 2017

A study of 1,100 employees recently found that those who work remotely felt shunned and left out, according to an article by Joseph Grenny and David Maxfield in Harvard Business Review.

The authors write:

"When it comes to virtual teams, if you're out of sight, you're also out of mind. While more and more people are working remotely, our recent study suggests that unless we take extra measures to build trust and connection with colleagues, we pay dearly for doing so.

We polled 1,153 employees, and 52% said they work, at least some of the time, from their home office. And when they do, many feel their colleagues don't treat them equally. Remote employees are more likely to report feeling that colleagues mistreat them and leave them out. Specifically, they worry that coworkers say bad things behind their backs, make changes to projects without telling them in advance, lobby against them, and don't fight for their priorities."

Surprisingly, despite their findings, the authors to offer a positive solution that does not include ending the privilege of remote work for those who enjoy it (or work that was as a necessity). They recommend:

"While managers may be tempted to respond to these findings by ending remote work programs and bringing everyone back to the office, we don't recommend that. Instead, they should encourage habits that lead to feelings of trust, connection, and shared purpose."

If you are in this situation currently and find speaking with your manager doesn't improve your situation, there's always another option: applying to one of our remote jobs with a company that cares.

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.

LGBTQIA+ Inclusion In The Workplace

As we celebrate Pride this month, we should also take time to reflect about the practices— or lack thereof— at our companies that help to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community all year round. (LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual. There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)

From the Stonewall Uprising to the United States' Equality Act, we've come a long way, but the staggering statistics around the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace tell us that there is still work to be done.
